I spent lots of time on the phone with this wonderful lady, having only known her online. We laughed, cried and help one another heal. She had a way of handling things...really helped me to look at life differently. She once wrote me an 8 page letter. She was the funniest and one of the strongest people I've ever known. I'll miss her. To her family: My thoughts and prayers will be with you always. I know she loved each and every one of you.

When I was about 10 or 12 years old. My aunt Sherri lived on circular street. She would make this dish, which is my favorite dish to this day but every time I went over to her house, it always smelled like curry chicken. Even up until I was in my mid to late teens. I miss and love you everyday aunt Sherri!
