I am so sad to hear of your passing. We met in high school. I remember coming to your house for a party, and we played the Doobie Brothers, 'Black Water', over and over all night! Rest in Heaven Sherry.

Saddened with the passing of Sherry. She was a good friend and neighbor for many years. Will miss her. She had a love for her family and her animals,especially her cats.Loved her sense of humor, always made me laugh when I was talking with her. She leaves behind a legacy of love and care and a lust for life. Save me a seat,Sherry, someday I'll join you so we can watch the "Grand Stage of Life" from Heavenly Box Seats. I'll miss ya, girl. P.S. Never lose that ornery smile.
