Jerry was "one of a kind!" It was an honor to have worked with her at Riverside Main Office for several years. What a hard worker!
AND, she LOVED her son's!!
I sure loved her and enjoyed meeting up with Jerry from time to time after we no longer worked together....
She was a beautiful person and will be missed!
