Sherri, You were my neighbor who lived right beside me for at least 25 yrs. You knew not only my children but knew my Grandchildren before they were born and cared about them like they were yours. When the Grand kids came to visit they would say I'm going to see Sherri, Lord knows what you all talked about but they would b at your house a long time.. To say we miss you is the understatement. I always enjoyed our visits! You made me laugh, think about things in a different way. I was glad to be your friend. I will never forget you and your caring about me and Chance and Madison and Joy who cared about you and loved you . Thanks for the great memories I have of you that will help me through this hard time .I love you my friend !

Sherri Was one in a million. She could always, always make me smile and would often give me encouraging words just to lift me up or brighten my day.
We loved joking together and had a lot of laughs.
I will miss her so much and I hate not getting to tell her goodbye.
I love you Sherri, and I’m so thankful you knew Jesus, And we’ll meet again one day.
Tell all my loved ones I said hello ♥️

Sherri was my best bud when we were younger.
We were like peanut butter and jelly, always together.
One of the many funny memories I remember about her is when her mother would tell us to take a bath, we would both dip our toes in the water and tell her we took a bath and laughed about it.
Sherri I love you very much, I wish we could’ve spent more time together as we got older.
You will forever be in my heart ❤️
