    Cindy & Family-
    Some of my fondest memories of coming to your house when I was a child were getting to spend time with your mom. She was always so good to me. May she rest in peace with your dad??

    Dear Cindy & Family,
    Words can never express the sorrow that you and your family are feeling at this time.
    What a beautiful Mother and sister. I was so Blessed having her as my sister. Gerry was so smart, she loved to talked about everything, Jesus, current events and family.
    She was full of laughter, and loved her music, I will truly miss her. However ,one day I will see her in Heaven with the rest of my family and Jesus. She raised a beautiful family that is full of love that will be carried on by the whole family.
    Our prayers are with all of you at this difficult time.
    From the Campbell family
