    I was so deeply sorry to see this, I didn't know she was sick & so soon after Gerry passed. We were very good friends when we were younger. She was a sweet special friend. The thought of her being gone is heartbreaking. I will love & miss her always She is with her Lord and at piece! Until we meet again enjoy Heaven as I know you are!
