Lanier, Russell and family, I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Aunt Jerrie was the picture of health when I saw her just a few months ago and it's so shocking to hear of her passing. I remember that all of us had a beautiful conversation about the Willman family lore and Aunt Jerrie and I were going to compare genealogical notes after she went home from LA.

To Aunt Jerrie, we will all miss you and I will treasure greatly our conversation and the very kind words you had for me when you were in LA.

Dear Aunt Jerrie,

It seems like you, Mom, Lanier, Tom, Julie and I were just sitting on the patio visiting over coffee in the LA sun. It was so nice to have that time together and the trip to the beach was such a blast. Jordan, Pete and I were hoping to see you all here again very soon. I feel so fortunate we had that week together and the time in Idaho a few years ago. Jordan and I will always cherish those times. You were always my favorite Aunt and I will miss you.

I hope you're back at the beach, listening to the waves with all our lost loved ones, just relaxing, having fun and basking in the sun.

We will love and miss you always.
Kathleen, Jordan and Peter

My Dear Aunt Jerrie, I find it so unreal that you are no longer here. I just thought you would be just fine. Every time we talked about sitting on our front porch (in Idaho), watching the sunset, with you and mom and Kevin and I, it made me so happy! It was our secret dream! I am so sad we won't be doing that now. Just know, I will always remember your kindness and good sense and your generosity to all you knew. My favorite Auntie always, Love Juanita

Jerrie was my baby sister, I loved her so much! Jerrie and I, Tom and Lanier were able to spend time together in September and reconnect. I loved our time we were able to spend together. I am so happy we had that time. I just find it hard to believe she is gone. Much love to you Jerrie. I will miss you so much. Love your sister, Nila Jane.

May God provide you and your family enough strength to face these difficult times, although no words can really help to ease the loss of your Mom, just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer.

Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy

God Bless You,

It had been years since I had seen my Aunt Jerrie, I had contacted her regarding my mom's 80th birthday party. I was so glad to see her and Russ and Lanier and to reconnect to the Willman family. I wish that she had the chance to take the train trip that she and my mom had planned to take last October but due to health issues was unable to. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
