Message from Jerry
Thank you all so very much for the beautiful flowers. I would like you all to know my Lover & best friend passed away at home with her family at her side. She did not suffer from any pain. She was comfy, warm & loved. I told Kris how proud of her I was for her bravery, she had absolutely no fear to pass away. Kris knew without any doubt God would accept her with open arms. I would like you all to also know Kris passed on looking as beautiful as ever. My son Ty daughter in law Tandie & granddaughter are headed to Kris’s favorite place at Big Lake for the weekend. We plan to release the beautiful flowers you gave us on the lake in a couple days after we enjoy them for a while longer. God bless you all!
