I met Terry and Sherry several years ago when they came to Oklahoma to see her sister and I was recommended to her to fix her hairs. Every time they came to Oklahoma she and Terry would come in the salon I knew right away that we were going to be good friends. After she moved to Cordell I continued to do her hair weekly loved her spunky fun loving soul. Sherry always had a positive attitude no matter what the situation. I consider her one of my best friends and she will be missed . I am so glad she is whole again , no pain ,and with her sweetheart Terry. Prayers and thoughts be with her family. Love you Sherry ❤️🌹

Miss Sherry was my neighbor for 4 yrs. I have never met a more loving carrying person in my life. The day Don and I walked over to meet our new neighbor was the most rewarding day ever.. We became a family with her family. I took her to many appointments and was so thankful we could help out. Her Tennessee nature was not put on. It was real. Love and miss you so much already. She has told me so many times my Mr Don was so much like her Terry
So thankful you are not in pain now. Love you

I’ve known Sherry for a long time. Our boys went through high school, played football, & then on to the marine corp. It’s been a joy to do things w/her & when Terry was here we used to enjoy doing things together as two couples hanging out. She sure loved her Lord, hubby, & children/grands. It was an honor to call her friend. I’ll be in prayer for the future decendants of the Burns’ Family. 🙏🏼 , {Hugs}, & ❤️ To all! Mrs. Shelia is a phone call away anytime.
