To Teri, Kevin, Brian and families - Our extend our deepest sympathies in the passing of your beloved mother. My fondest memories of Aunt Gerry are her fun-loving spirit. her laughter, and offers of sweet ice tea when we all lived in California. Our families were close and stayed in though throughout the years with family reunions in Ohio. May you all find comfort in your time together with her. With love, Karen ((Severt) Deychakiwsky and family in Maryland
