Sherry was such a sweet lady! I knew her since I was little growing up in church. I always loved seeing all of the beautiful hats she would wear on Sunday to the Grace Place. She will be missed! Sending prayers to all of her family!

Sherry was such a spirited happy woman. I so enjoyed meeting her at Andi and Michaels wedding and rehearsal dinner. I hope she is finally at peace . I know she will be truly missed by so many!
