Jonas, Angela and Kim. Sherry was not only my co-worker but a very dear friend. It all began when I started working for the Florida Department of Revenue back in 1976. She was the first person I met and became friends with. This lasted for over 38 years. We shared many good times talking about family and the things we each loved to do. I felt I personally knew her family because she talked about you all every day. Jonas, Angela, Kim and the Grandkids were her world. Sherry and Jonas relationship inspired me and set a great example of what a married couple should be. When you saw one you saw the other. I’ll never forget how she left work every Friday knowing that was grocery store day. Sherry and I ate lunch together everyday, celebrated birthdays and exchanged Christmas gifts. She was one of the hardest working and most dedicated employees at the agency. She took her job very seriously and gave it her very best. When she retired she was so very much missed. One regret I have is she fell on my mine a couple of weeks ago and I said to myself I must call Sherry and I never did. Always follow your mind because that little voice means something. Linda, she really loved those vacations and family times. Sherry was straight forward, kind, giving, funny and an awesome person. My Friend 💐

Love you all,
Sheila James

To our Mom (Nana)

The family wanted to let the rest of the world know what a special person our Nana was.
Our family is small but it is strong and a tight nit group, Nana was the glue that held us together so strong. We have all struggled to understand and accept why she was taken from us so soon.
Our nana's presence was consistency, despite the many challenges we have endured, we did endure it together and she was there through it all. Our togetherness enabled us to navigate the constant challenges and changes that life brings us. She gave us a invulnerable strength. That strength endures and it is with us today. We as a family vow to continue to keep our family strong and together.
In our time together nana taught us some of life's most important lessons and she did so in a unique and powerful way. Rarely if ever did she preach a specific message or compel us to act in a certain manner, rather Nana inspired us and influenced us through her actions. While with her words she was humble and caring, in her actions she was bold and powerful. She brought us joy and laughter and sometimes at her own expense. She taught us the power of authenticity. We always knew where we stood and knew that she said what she meant and meant what she said. Well expect when she would in her silly way get mixed up then she would say "You know what I meant to say."
Her arms were always open if and when we needed her. She taught us how to live authentically and be comfortable with that. Nana lived by her own code and because of her we can now embrace difference. We are going to miss her deeply but we know she will always be with us in our hearts. We just wish we had one last chance while she was here on earth to tell her how much she meant to us. But we know she can hear us today and know that she meant the world to all of us and in the next life we will be together and we will tell her again how much she is loved.

Love you Nana,
Angela and Kim

I'm honored to remember one of the best people I've ever known. My family moved across the street from the Smith's in December 1960. Sherry & Linda were the first two friends I made. We were friends through our teens but life took us in different directions. Although we didn't see each other often the friendship remained. I have so many treasured memories of our childhood, I could write a book. Although you have gone on before us, we will always carry you here in our hearts, and though we can't touch you, we will surely never forget the way you touched us. We will see you again in heaven my sweet friend. May God put his arms around your dear family and give them peace that only he can. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalms 34:18.

I am so sad to hear the news of Sherry’s passing. She was one special soul. I saw Sherry a couple of years ago and she hadn’t changed a bit. She always had a smile on her face and that laugh she had warmed your heart. May God give you peace and comfort during this difficult time. Sherry will be in our hearts and memories forever.

But they that wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31

My sweet sister Sherry,

My heart is so broken now that you have left us. We had some many fun times together, growing up and our vacations together as adults.

You had a beautiful soul inside and out. You loved your family and we all loved you. You would always make me that special pan of dressing. I did find out that you really did put onions in it.

I know that I will see you in heaven one day. I love you and miss you so much sister. I will take care of the girls for you and of course Jonas.

Our family will bond even stronger as you would have wanted it to.

Love you my sister!❤️
