She had a special place in my heart! When I last saw her in the fall the nurses said she probably won’t remember who you are or really not say much! Well she sure did remember who I was called me by my name! Love her and all the burrows family ❤️

My thoughts prayers to the Burrows. Many good memories over so many years, with our families.
I am going to share a great memory! I was traveling to Florida via Amtrak and a lady sitting across from me started visiting. We introduced ourselves and Gerry knew the town I am from and told me about bringing cattle to the weekly cattle auction in DeKalb Junction. I told her that I had a hair shop in DeKalb for many years. She got really excited and went on to tell me that she had been so busy prior to going on this trip that she hadn’t taken time to get her hair cut. Gerry said if you have scissors with you, would you cut my hair? I am thinking to myself this would be a first, but I will make it happen for this lady. We proceeded to go to the bathroom and I got the job done. It was a challenge snipping hair rockin-n-rollin down the train track! She was so happy and we continued to laugh about it all the way to Florida. A memory I will never forget.
Sending condolences to Justin and Kim and the rest of the family.

Condolences to the Burrows family. My heart goes out to you with the loss of your Mom.
Strong loving women are often the glue that strengthens a family and keeps them together. So it was with my Aunt Gerry. She was the heart of her family. I’ll always remember her as a beautiful, strong willed woman who was so full of life. I know her children, especially, are grappling with that loss. I am truly sorry for your pain and sorrow. May GOD bless you and provide comfort always.
Jim, you are so kind and loving. You have a special place someday in Heaven.
