I went to sleep thinking of you, and woke up thinking about you. How in the world could you leave me this way? I wanted to come visit you today. I called your phone number to wish Matthew "Happy Birthday". No one answered. I'm still so very sad.

Gerilyn will always be known to me as Gerilyn Sims. We were best friends for 65 years. I will always cherish our love and friendship we had. Life for me will never be the same. Gerilyn, until we meet again.

I am so sorry to learn of Gerilyn's passing. She was always willing to help me with technology when we worked together. She was always patient when assisting me with new software, ordering new software, or working with me to resolve technology issues. Gerilyn was always kind to me and I appreciated her knowledge and the training classes she offered. My condolences to her family and friends.
