  3. My dear friend, I will miss our wonderful time together. Holiday dinners and rowdy farkle games with “Miss Kitty and Slim Shady”. We never could beat those two.
    Geri was more than a friend to me. She was there when my Mom passed. She was my second Mom and boy was I lucky. We talked about everything from flowers to her favorite Astros. I will miss her everyday.
    Much love always !

  7. Bill,Gerri,Laura & Bill truly have been lifelong friends. Our family construction company (Howard instruction) built many churches designed by Bill. Through that relationship we became friends. Gerri is truly one of a kind. She was a natural beauty & even more as a person. I had the honor to work for Bill when he started his business & Gerri worked with him. She touched my life & I’m blessed to call her my dear friend.
    Love you Gerri.
