    Jim and Nikki, I will never forget what a hard worker and good mom Jerrie was. I remember her staying up late at night to spot bleach out stains on Jim’s shirt. I remember her getting frustrated at us, and yet being surprisingly cool as a mom. I remember riding with her to take Nikki to live at her dad’s and then our long strange trip home stopping in Mulliken. She was always so very nice to me. I am sorry she is gone. My heart goes out to you both.
