Mrs. Sherrie was beautiful inside and out. She always had an amazing smile and loved to talk about how my parents were such good friends in years past. My Mom would say to be on my best behavior because we would be visiting the Sherries. (I tried)
She loved her family and missed her husband. We will see them all again. Love and prayers to you at this time.
