Jerry’s faith in God was revealed in every area of her life. She was such an example of living a Godly Christian life. I learned so much from her and was proud to call her friend. In all circumstances she praised God. One of the most positive people I have ever known. She has been so ready to meet her maker and I know this is so comforting to the family. She was loved by so many!
