Not sure what to say?

Jerri was a quiet, soft spoken lady with a beautiful smile. She was a special friend for more than fifty years. Praying for her family in their great loss. Heaven has another member of our church family and we’re going to have a great reunion one day soon. Love to the Burrell family.

Dwight, Celeste and family, you are in our thoughts and prayers.

I know that there’s a great reunion in heaven with all those wonderful ladies from Bham 1st Church: Marge Hancock, Charlotte Perry, Joanne Evans, Sue Nix, Norma Bumpus, many others & now, Jerri Burrell. Jerri was one of the kindest ladies I’ve ever known. Love to Vaughn & the whole family.

Mr. Burrel, it is with great sadness to know of your and the family's loss. I will keep you all in my prayers and thoughts during this difficult time.

Being a first cousin of Jerry’s, she and her family were my favorite to visit as I grew up. My prayers for her family.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Burrell family in this time of great sorrow. May you find peace in God who brings comfort to all the mourning ones.
