Memories Timeline


  1. I am very sorry for the loss of your dad Damon and Brandon…and for you Mrs Linda. Our Dads went to school together at Marion..Dad graduated 2 years before Mr Sherman. You all are in my thoughts and prayers!

  2. Linda and family, we are sorry for your loss. We will always remember the fun times we had with Sherman in high school. God Bless you all.

  3. Linda, Damon Brandon,I am so sorry for your lost. All of you are in my thoughts and may God carry you through this time of grief. I know it does not feel like it now, but God will ease the pain in your hearts in time.

  4. Mrs. Linda, Brandon, and Damon – there are no words to express how truly sorry I am for your loss. You are all in my thoughts… sending much love to you all.Michelle Morgan and family

  5. My prayers go out to Sherman's family. Sherman and I went to high school together and knew his parents. His father repaired our TV. When I stole a pack of cigarettes from his mother, she would not let me pay her after she caught me. She told me it was a lifetime lesson. It was. I am sure we were distant cousins as my grandmother was a Sonnier from Chataignier, not far from Basile where Sherman was born. God Bless. May Lord lift you all up at this time of loss. Murphy Miller (LC resident from 1955 to 1959)

  6. Our deepest sympathy in the loss of my old friend Sherman. We attended school together when he lived in Elton. We also shinned shoes every Saturday in Elton. He was well known for his Woody Woodpecker call! He was full of laughter and mischief.
