Miss Sherry was one of the first people I met when I first began attending Liberty Free Will Baptist Church. I never met a friendlier person. After I left the church I would continue to get “hello” messages from her, which were truly sweet and meant so much. I am sad that she is physically not with her family and friends anymore, but I have to rejoice that her pain, her suffering and her battle have been won. Where she is now is where we all strive to be. God bless and comfort the family. No one ever is truly gone as long as they live in your heart.

Sherry, I am going to miss the messages you send me all the time. I know you are so happy to be with Don again. We had so many wonderful memories during high school. Until we meet again over on that beautiful shore tell all my friends and loved ones it won’t be very long. I love you dear friend. Go and Rest In Peace now with Don and many loved ones. ???

Was goods friends with Sherry in grade school and when she worked at Bell South in Bowling Green. Lost touch with her after she and Don went to Hawaii. Always a sweet, caring person. She is with Don again. Blessings to the family.

Maria, I am so sorry to hear about Sherry’s passing. I have wondered many times where you both had settled. I hope you are well and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Please convey my deepest sympathies to Sherry’s family. She was always a sweetheart! She’s the third cousin on my mom’s side that we’ve lost this year! So sad!??
