You always watched out for all of us in need of an extra hand, meal , piece of clothing, etc. Always there for advice, a hug, a good laugh whatever. You were the best friend anyone could ever ask for. Now I will have to turn to you in prayer to ask now what? You are already truly missed and I am so sorry I didn't here your last phone call. God bless you Sherry, I loved you and now you know!
