  1. I have only known Gerry for about 3 years, since I have been leading a hymn sing at the Bow View each Sunday afternoon. Gerry faithfully attended each week, and sang each song with meaning and energy. She was really an encouragement to me, with her friendly attentiveness and her good singing. Until about the last year, she would often speak up when I would ask for favorites, and her favorite song was always “When we all get to Heaven.” I could see and sense that really was her hope, and I can just see her singing at the feet of Jesus now.
    Your mom was a blessing and an encouragement to me.
