So sorry I respected and admired your mom a lot Love to you all
I lost a good friend on this day but now she is flying with the angels. Say hello to my mother and dad!!!!!
Please accept my deepest sympathies. Sherry and I became friends in eighth grade. I loved her sense of humor, kindness and loyalty. We were at a slumber party together the night I first went out with the guy I ended up marrying. And she called me when I was at the University of Illinois to tell me she was getting married. We even had a car wreck together when Sherry drove her big green ‘47 Plymouth coupe straight into the west gate at Charley Brown Park. I’ll miss one of my dearest and longest time friends immensely.
Sherry was the sweetest lady, a dear friend, and so loved by everyone. I worked with her for years at Sparton and always had fun babysitting Erica and Ariane. Blessings and Prayers for you all.

Erica, Ariane and family, I'm so sorry to hear about your Momma. She was such a wonderful woman and a good friend to my Momma. They worked together for years at Sparton. I used to go over to y'all's house as a teenager, not only to see you girls, but to sit and talk with your Momma and Daddy. I always thought they were so cool!

Dear Robby, Erica & Ariane, I am your mom's cousin--my dad was her Uncle Pete. He was your grandma Mildred's brother.

I'll say a special prayer today as you have her service; may all of you feel God's peace. Psalms 73:25-26
