I went to church with Sherry at Gardenside Christian, then also at First Christian church, Sherry was always so nice, friendly, and a wonderful person to be around, she and I both missed her husband after he passed, now I know she is happy to be with him, RIP Sherry,
So sorry to hear of Sherry’s passing. She was a great comfort to me when I lost my husband. Prayers for her children and grandchildren. Rest In Peace Sherry. Love your cousin Cathy
Tina and Beth and families, I'm so sorry to hear the passing of aunt Sherry. My deepest sympathy to you, your families and friends. Losing a mother is one of the hardest things in this world but I am happy to know that she is in the presence of her Lord and Saviour and reunited with those that have gone before us. What a reunion she must be experiencing. It is clear from this picture she had mastered the pose from her mom (Lillian) which brings me joy. In Christ, Chris
