Gerry was an amazing woman I had the honor and pleasure of knowing. She helped me to learn to smile more and worry less. Because of Gerry, I became a faster swimmer (just trying to keep up!). How wonderful it was to assist her volunteering at the Jewish Home. You have my sincere sympathy for your loss.
