Went to High School in Arlington with Jeri and she was a friend always. I do not get back much to Ohio - the last I got to eat with Jeri and Judy and that was a special time for sure.
Prayers for all

Dear Darrell,
We were sorry to read about Jeri passing. Alzheimer is truly a terrible thing for both the person and kin. It's great you have taken care of her for so long a time. You are in Pat and I's prayers.
