Condolence & Memory Journal


As I prepare for one last visit with you Jeri, I realize just how lucky we all were to have had you in our lives. The sacrifices you've made, your giving goes without saying that the family you now leave behind is a testament to the wonderful woman you were. They are so special and I love them all so so much. I just pray that I can help provide them strength as they surely will need it moving forward without you here. May you rest well knowing you are so loved...and always will be...
XOXO - Kim and family

Glen, Stacie, Dee, Nicole, Kevin and all of the boys-
Mike and I were so sorry to hear of Jeri's passing. She suffered a long time and now she's at peace and I hope you all can be also.
She did so much for you all through your lives and it was great that you could give back to her at the end of her life. We'll always remember her spectacular cakes for birthdays, graduations, etc. They were a labor of love and I know she was deeply disappointed when she could no longer do them.
We all have our ups and downs with our mothers, but there is a hole in our heart when they're gone.
Give each other comfort now but more importantly when memories flood back and someone is having a tough day, be there for each other.
Nicole and Stacie, I know that you have always supported each other and will continue to stand strong, you both have wonderful families.
We Love you!
Mike and Kathy
