To Miss Geralean's Family,We have not met but I've spent some time with Geralean as a volunteer with my dog Clementine at Windsor Point. Geralean always liked to see Clemmy and often invited me in to sit down and watch TV with her! Some days were easier than others to communicate - but we enjoyed the upbeat days, as well as the quiet TV time. We will miss our visits with her and wish to share our deepest condolences.Beth Damiano + Clementine

My Dad, James Lee Bass, was a classmate of Jerri's at Four Oaks. He passed in February of 2016. My mom, Catherine Lee Bass was a couple of grades behind them but remembers her fondly and they always enjoyed seeing everyone at their class reunions. My mom is currently in a nursing home and even though she lacks mobility, her mind is still sharp and when I told her about your mom's passing she asked that I share our condolences.

Jerri and Bryan were pillars in our church in Raeford. They had such an impact on me growing up. I will always remember them with tenderness. I look forward to seeing them again some day.Mary Neil Senter KingRaeford

Miss Jerri was such a sweet lady and wonderful neighbor. She was always gracious to my raucous family and grandchildren across the street even when they may have been annoying to others. Always a kind word. She was loved by friends, neighbors and her church family. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her. May she rest in peace with her sweet husband. Debra L McGuire
