    To all the family,

    Our deepest condolences. While we think we met Jerry on a few different occasions, we feel we know her more through the stories we have heard over the years and of course through FaceBook. What a wonderful Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma and friend. How loved she was by all! We loved seeing the pictures of her in Vegas and of course with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren! Sending warm thoughts and hugs as you go through this loss. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”

    Hugs and love,
    Deb and Ron Lloyd
