My twin, my best friend. What am I to do without you? It still feels unreal. I know you are happy with Mom Dad & Barry. I have so many good memories of us! I feel like half of my heart is missing! Rest In Peace in the arms of God. I will always love you

One year, Sherry, Andrea, and I went to Downtown Detroit. It was Thanksgiving Day, and we had signed up to participate in the Turkey Trot 5K walk that year. I remember we got up extremely early and even despite that, we had many laughs and enjoyed the day.

Sherry will truly be missed. My deepest condolences to her family and friends.

I knew Sherry through her children Kim & Brad as a stepparent for 15 years and a friend for over 20 years. She loved her children, and spoke lovingly about them. She loved being a part of their lives and the lives of her grandchildren. I won't forget your smile, kind words, and our conversations about your hopes for your awesome kids. Thank you for the parenting encouragement you gave me - and the laughs we had! You were always willing to help and encourage your kids. You will be missed...Rest in Peace.
