I'm so sorry for your family's loss. Gerry was a great lady who was always there for her family and community. I remember visits to the Salvation Army with the DuBray's when I was younger. She and my Aunt Any we're usually busy there, sorting donations and helping folks. I'm sending prayers and love.🙏❣️
