"My sweet Kerri-berry,  I miss you so much.  I just spent hours on your tribute site.  I can't believe it's been two years since you went to your eternal resting place.  I was listening to your voice telling your story of survival and inspiration.  You were such a survivor and such an inspiration to so many others.  So beautiful inside and out.  I am overwhelmed at this moment with missing you, and I can only imagine how it is for your Mother.  But you must be so proud of her for keeping it together and moving on in her life trying to help others in your honor.
I pray that you are at peace, without pain, and I will always miss you and love you.  God loaned you to us for a short time, and you taught us many lessons, but most of all love.     Aunt Barbie"

"My beautiful baby girl! You are forever missed every minute of every day! I am moving forward with my life as I know you would wish for me. My focus now is your beautiful sister and her family. They keep me sane and able to go on. But I also am working to get my education so I can help the parents and siblings of addicts to understand the disease and learn to live with their loved ones. Kerri, this earth is so full of heroin addiction, I realize now that God saved you from falling any further into oblivion. I miss you so much but, my plan for MY life will be a legacy to you. I will see you when God decides it's time. Until then please send your love to guide me to do good for others, just as you did always. I Love You Much and Miss You Much Much More!! XOXO Muwaah! MA"

"Hey Babygirl!!! (as you ALWAYS called me)

I had just heard of your passing a few days ago. Was in utter shock. I remember you like it was yesterday. You were one of a kind; I remember our small car rides together after shifts at the pancake house. You always had such a vibrant energy that was unique.

May you fly with the angels freely. Vanessa, Melanie, Lynz, and I will always remember you.  Love, "Special K" or babygirl ;)"

"Wow Kerri I was extremely saddened to hear of your passing. I have known you for such a long time since our days working at Bickfords in Saugus and then the early days at ALWAYS had such nice things to say about me and Dana's relationship and I will never forget that. You were taken from this world way too soon and the world has truly lost a beautiful soul. May you rest eternally."

"Kerri, I'm at a loss for words,  There is no way to describe the pain in losing a beautiful person that you were.  You were my first sponsor, you  were the vital piece of my recovery.  You showed my how to live clean, you loved me when I could not yet love myself.  Without you I never would have what I have today.  I'm forever indebted to you. R.I.P love u"

"To my beautiful friend, you taught me so much.  When we were younger, your realness-heart on your sleeve and passionate personality, your loyalty and of course infectious laughter, drew me to want to be a part of your life and you a part of mine.  I had no idea that as we grew up you would change my life forever. Thank you for the memories, your friendship, and your love. Loveyamama."

"My thoughts today, Kerri-berry, keep reverberating back to those early days of camping at Jigger Johnson.  You on your bycicle, laughing, racing around the paths and roads of the campground.  There were no strangers in that campground.  You visited everyone and left each in laughter and sunshine.  That is what you did..Kerri.  You spread laughter, love and sunshine.  You still do!"
