  • Dear Lisa and family, Bryan and I want to send our deepest condolences. Gerrie Had such a beautiful, calming, Loving, gentle spirit about her. When I first met her all I could think was now there’s a true lady. She carried herself so Regally. And talk about being as smart as a whip. And she just loved to share her knowledge. She made you think. And her laugh was so infectious. I love the way she talked about her husband and her kids. There was such a love in every word. I feel very privileged to have been able to do her hair for as long as I did. We had excellent conversations and she always left me with something to ponder and wanting to dive into my Bible and to learn more. When she couldn’t get out she would always email me interesting , thought-provoking things to read or listen to. Always made my day. She will be so missed but it’s very comforting to know she is with the Lord that she loved so deeply. Our prayers are with you all.
