I just read of Jerri's death. We Sisters, were honored to have had Jerri assist us with the Women's Reteats at the Precious Blood Spiritual Center in Columbia during the Summer. Geraldine was always most helpful, assisting in any way she could with her very pleasant personality. Her artwork that she put on programs and daily schedules was most beautiful. What a gift from God she was to us. May she now be gazing on the Face of God, free from all pain, etc. We will certainly keep her in our prayers -she was such a blessing to us.
Sincerely,
Adorers of the Blood of Christ
