I am so sad to hear of the passing of Gerri.  I worked with her at Nells for several years in the deli department.  She was always a "ray of sunshine".  She had a kind heart and everyone loved her.  She will definitely be missed.  I send prayers and condolences to her family.

I was saddened to read of the loss of Geraldine.  When we lose our loved one in death it is the most difficulttime in our life. However, there is loving comfort in Psalms 55:22 “throw your burden on Godand he will sustain you..” Yes, no matter what you are facing God is there to help you get through it. May you continue tohave the love and support from family and friends. I sincerely hope that this Bible message brings youa measure of comfort during this difficult time.
