"Family of Gerri
My sincerest condolences on the passing of your beloved mother and sibling. I spent many years meeting in prayer with Gerri in a Small Christian Community at St Lucy Church. She was a fine woman and child of God. I learned a great deal about my spirituality from her in our meetings. I will miss her friendship. She, and you, her family, will be remembered in my prayers. God bless you all!"
