  3. Sherry, The world was a more beautiful place with you in it. Now Heaven is so much brighter with you there. A wonderful rose forever planted in our Lords garden. It was such an honor and a privilege to know you.

  4. So sorry to here the sad news. Sherry has always brought a smile to my face and made me laugh when I would think of her. Man the great times we had together along with Belinda and Rocky were just so cool. The laughs were never ending and we never knew just what kind of adventure we would be in next. Those were some great times in life. Thank you Sherry for your friendship and as the song goes, I Hope you Dance. Well Sherry you did Dance in life and not let it go by without grabbing a hold to it and living it. Good for you Girl! I will miss you,
