    Jerri was a bright spot in my life. I met her in Toastmasters, her smile and laughter were infectous. Our career paths crossed often - and we shared a few Sunday mornings at OVUMC. She will be missed by many. Our prayers are with her devoted husband and family.

    Rock and family, I am so sorry to hear of Jerri's passing. It was an honor and priviledge to care for her during her illness. You all made me feel a welcome part of the family. All my love and prayers for everyone during this painful transition. Our Lord has indeed welcomed an angel into His arms.

    Jerri you were a true southern lady in every sense of the word. You were giving, caring, and loving all people that you met and putting other before yourself. Mrs Mam you will truly be missed I loved you so.
