To: Sherry's family
I pray that God will grant you peace and comfort in the days to come. Losing a mother, child, sister, and a friend is never easy. I have not seen or talked with Sherry in many years, but I will always remember her fun loving ways and some of the wonderful times we had growing up together.
Rest in Peace, Sherry

I was shocked and saddened to learn of Sherry's passing. I am so sorry for the family's loss. I knew Sherry and her family when they lived in Byron, GA many years ago, and I babysat for her before and a little while after, Beth's birth. Caylin was such a joy, and Beth a beautiful baby. I even crocheted a baby blanket for Beth. Praying for peace and comfort in this time of sadness.
