We were very happy when we met you at your daughter’s, Mary Ann Young Cyphert, dating back in 2005, and will truly miss your smile and wit into the not to distant future, until we meet once again.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I work at Ridgmont. Your mother knew me as Kitty-Kat. I’ve only worked at Ridgmont for about two months and your mother was the first resident that I made a strong connection with. I am the shower person there and she would wiggle her butt and dance in the shower. She really made me laugh. I will miss her terribly. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family. I will not be able to make it to her service. God bless.
Love, Alison (kitty-kat)

S.K. Richard, was sorry to learn of Gerri’s passing. I have fond memories of our days together with Amaranth. I still have a pair of earnings that Gerri gave me. It has been a long time since we have seen you, hope you are well. Take care and God bless.
In Amaranth love,

It was nice knowing you, Grandma, your grandson Ryan. From the times as a young child when I was growing up and continuing for the past 20 years.

Rest In Peace.

My prayers and sorrow to Dick, Mary Ann and family. Gerry was
like a big sister as I was growing up. News of her passing came
slow to California. I will miss her.
