Donna,
My heart aches for you and your family. I know you leaned on Sherrie a lot. She was that "sister friend" which is such a blessing to have. If you need to talk or just ride around to get away, just give me a call.

Love you
Your friend
Susan

Went to my Senior Prom with Sherri at Rule High School. I was a couple years older than Sherri. She was scared too death and so was I. We had a great time!!! Going to the Copper Kettle a lot ,driving her around in my old 53' Chevy!!! We had some fun times till I got drafted and we got separated. I am so sorry to all of the family.

Kelli,
I am so sorry for the loss of your momma. Losing a parent is so hard. I pray that God gives you and your sweet girls extra love and support during this difficult time. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.
Sending you, Emma, Addie and Sawyer big hugs!

Way to many trips to Tennessee arriving at all hours of the night.
Cornbread in the oven, Ponto beans with ham on the stove & always a large cafeteria style coffee pot on the counter top... & grannu in the other room asleep.
Many a trip Out to Chilhowie Park for the amusement rides & the bumper cars and the dirt race track.
Laughing at Susie and her boyfriends..
LOVE YOU Susie. Will miss you terribly.
God Bless you.

I always knew one day I would have to say goodbye. I wasnt ready yet tho. I love you and I've been listening to you. And I found the thimble. I will love you and miss you for the rest of my days. You taught me how to be strong and talk back.. you taught me how to be kind and forgiving. The thought that keeps coming to mind now is... who will i call now... thank you for loving me unconditionally.. ive heard that saying my whole life but you gave it meaning. Ill be strong and help our family in any way I can. I'll watch out for Donna, Kelli, Daddy, Em, Addie, and you know I got Evan. Our family will remain together in your memory! I love you to the moon. To all the moons. ♡ your loulabell

Sherrie and I lived together when she met Greg. She was the happiest I had ever seen her after that. We were best buds for a long time but with marriages, children, sickness, and other things we grew apart. We reconnected on FaceBook several years ago and have messaged a bunch. However, last week after about 20 years I felt the need to talk with her We had a great talk about just everything when I called. I will always be thankful that I listened to that little voice and called. I am proud to say I was loved by Sherrie. My thoughts and prayers are with her children and family.
