    So sorry to hear of Sherry’s passing. I went all through school with her, she was a bridesmaid in my wedding. We lost touch later in life but I knew she had a calling for taking care of people and those that she loved. Be assured that your sorrow will be replaced with good memories of Sherry’s great spirit. Be well.

    Sherry was a very good friend of mine. She worked for me many years as a homecare aide. I would run into her at the store and she always gave me a hug. She will be missed. You were the best Sherry. I always loved the color of your hair.

    Mamma Sherry was one of the sweetest persons I have ever known. She took such great care of my father after his accident and became a part of our family. She was so caring and so understanding. Even after his death she would call my mother regularly to check on her and make sure she was okay and if she needed anything. She will be greatly missed by everyone who knew and loved her. I hope she can rest now and look down on us with a smile on her face.
