Wacky Pac Quilters

Today the quilting world lost a prolific and talented quilter. Our dear Wacky Pac Sista, Jerri, lost her battle with cancer. She was such a 'trooper' and defied the odds so many times. She passed peacefully in her sleep at approximately 5 a.m. this morning.
Jerri was the life of the party. She was a fine Christian woman who loved the Lord. She also loved life, loved her family and friends and loved quilting. She was always just a phone call away....she had "Peeps" always available to help in any situation.
Jerri leaves behind a wonderful husband, Rex, who was a true angel. He never left her side. A son and daughter-in-law and two beautiful little granddaughters. She also leaves a whole host of friends who will miss her dearly.
My friend, I'll be seeing you on the other side one day. Put in a 'good word' for me with the Big Guy and tell my Mama I said I miss and love her.
I can't wait to see all the beautiful quilts you will make in Heaven. May you walk the golden streets of Heaven with your family and friends who have gone before you. May you never suffer again and always continue that wonderful laugh and cheerful nature. I will miss you, but I will never forget you. I love you my friend. May you rest in peace.
