So sorry. Sherry was a sweet lady. I enjoyed taking care of her at TPHC and later catching up with her on fb or when she was out and about.

My daughter Sidney and I were blessed to be such a close and personal part of Sherry's life. She was an amazing woman. She went through so much and she was so strong. I'm fairly certain we will never meet another like her. Don, we are here when you need us, you know all you have to do is call. Sherry, we love you so much and will miss you beyond words. Time to fly high with the angels, Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
