  13. Sherri was my next-door neighbor, then became my house-mate for many years and we shared a deep friendship along with her son Clint and brother Steve. Those years were happy, happy years, with so many nights of laughter and conversations over some of the most delicious meals. Sherri was an amazing woman and such a friend she was almost like a sister…I'm so sorry that so I never got to see her again after so many years, but Heaven just gained one awesome and wonderful Angel.

  14. To all the family please accept my condolences on your loss. I grew up on Rose St. accross the street from the Allen family, married and moved away in 1961. I returned to Rose St. around 1971 with my 2 children and Kirsten lived accross the st. with her 3 children. Our children played together on a daily basis and I remember Sherri as a beautiful young girl. So sorry to hear of her struggle with cancer. will keep you in my prayers for God's healing power.
