Our thoughts and prayers are with the Akerman family at this time of sorrow. As a neighbor growing up and then meeting up again at the Clinic, Jeri always had a smile on her face and positive outlook even while battling her fight with cancer. May she finally be at peace and peace be with the family.

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Jeri in the mail room and I was in constant contact with her on messenger on Facebook. She always told me she was doing ok or she was trying to get stronger. I so admire her for always sending me blessings, love and prayers. I miss her so much every time I get on Facebook. Ron knows how much I loved her. If there is anything I can do for any of you. Please let me know. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
