  8. Oh dear sweet Sherry. You were my friend before I was ever your sister-in- law. I have known you for 50 years. We met in 3rd grade and yes Becky was there too. Oh, the coffee and vanilla creamed filled donuts were great. Sweet friend of mine you never judged and always loved. Rest in peace sweet lady. Love you

    Sherry was one of the most beautiful & sweetest women I have ever meet. She helped me out many times over the 40+ years that we knew each other. She was the person that took me to get my drivers license when I was 16 & let me use her new Camaro for the driving test. I am sorry I was around more here at the end of her life. I loved Sherry like one of my sisters & I will always have the memories of her. May she enter into Heaven & join among the Angles.
    My prayers are with Tiffany, JP, John, Carolyn & Family… God Bless ,…

  10. Lots of prayers and hugs coming your way. Rona , Joe and I send our condolences . Love you.

  11. My condolences to the family. When loosing a loved one it can be unbearable. That is why God has provided scriptures in the Bible to help ones cope with the loss. In the Bible book of Isaiah 25:8 Jehovah God promises soon to “swallow up death forever.” He also promises to bring back those who have fallen asleep in death (Acts 24:15). In a little while longer this kind of pain will be a thing of the past (Revelations 21:4). May these scriptures bring you comfort in this difficult time
