    I am so sorry to hear of Jeri's sudden death. Last Sunday I spoke with her on the way out of church and ask her how SHE was doing, she told me how she misses her husband, that he was such a happy person and she misses him very much.. She was a lovely person and I really will miss her in church and during our summer circle dinners. May God bless her family, as she was so proud of all of you.
