    To Rock, Teresa, Richard and all your family, Jerri's beauty came from within and glowed everywhere she went - in her smile and in her actions! The memorial service was beautiful - just like Jerri. We will all miss her but her memories will be with us until we see her again. My love and thoughts are with you,and my prayers are for you. Always your friend and sister in Christ, Martha
