    I am still in shock. Gerri was a beautiful woman who I had the pleasure to work with, laugh with and enjoy every Friday night with for the last 19 years. Her laugh made my heart smile, her presence made my life so much more enjoyable. She love talking about her family, her grandchildren Abe & Mariam, Shawn & Jessica and you as well Mel, how and when she met you and all your beautiful years together..I will miss our chats. When she wasn’t feeling well in late January our Friday nights came to a halt..not knowing what was to come. She promised me she would feel better soon always putting others first. I will miss her dearly everyday but I have so many great memories that I have to hold onto forever. She will never be forgotten. Thinking of you always during this difficult time….hugs
