Thinking of you and wishing you a happy birthday. God bless your family and give them peace.
Let There Be Peace On Earth!!
The World Misses Your Passion!!!
As well as Your Advocacy, for Kids More Than You Know!!!
For God is not unrighteous so as to forget your work and the love you showed for his name by ministering and continuing to minister to the holy ones (Hebrews 6:10). Mary will never be forgotten for all the work she did for her community and especially those sweat little ones in her care. May God continue to strengthen your family in these “times hard to deal with” (2Tim 3:1), especially without a beloved one such as Mary Sherlach.
Thank you Mary for your bravery. You are truly an Angel. You will forever be in my thoughts and prayers.
How Christ like,Her actions were. When Jesus was on the earth, everything He did as the messiah was for others, even coming to the earth was for the sake of mankind(John 3:16).May you the family find peace. FWJ Jr.
Remembering beautiful Mary and keeping her and the Sherlach family in my heart and in my prayers today and every day. Love always wins.
God bless you and your family. Our hearts are broken for all the families.
To the Sherlach Family,
Thinking of you and your family every day especially at this time of year. May you find peace this holiday season. We as a nation are still deeply affected by what happened and we will never forget.
The Chermansky Family
to the sherlack family and friends.may our father in heaven.bring you comfort this holiday season.and on the 14th my thoughts and prayers will be with you on the 14th .when you lost the hero now angel mary.one year ago.god bless you all.
It can be so hard to face the first year without Mary , but God can give you all the strength you need to carry you through. He is aware of your pain and whatever you are going through emotionally. .. let him help you he knows what you need. (Jeremiah 29:12) . . .And YOU will certainly call me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to YOU. . .
let the piece and christ be with you im so sorry that happened
god bless mary family and friends.
‘Let the children come to me, and do not stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to persons like them.' Then Jesus takes the children in his arms, and blesses them. (Mt 19:13-15) Isn't it good to know that Jesus loves little children?
We must continue to cherish our little ones like Jesus before tragedy takes them away.
Somehow I've known that Mary was a Very Special Person in my own mind that goes clear back to the Sixth Grade of Parochial School. With me not realizing that it was Mary that was involved in the Sandy Hook Tragedy; and not really knowing because I hadn't seen the mentioning Her Maiden name has crushed me. My thoughts also goes out to Dennis, and all of Her Family now and till the end of time. I bare such sorrow knowing that Mary truly was a wonderful human being; someone that you could Truely Love and Respect! I hope to meet up with Her once again.
mary was a hero.god bless marys family and friends.
To Mary's family. I apologize for getting this to you late in memory of Mary's birthday. I hope this poem will give you a little bit of peace and comfort. You are in my prayers daily. God bless you!
In Memory of Mary Sherlach
February 11, 2013
It takes someone very special to understand the problems of a child
Someone like Mary Sherlach whose manner with them was ever so mild.
She watched each child who crossed her path
An abused one brought on her personal wrath.
To help them cope with everyday strife
To protect them from the forces of evil was her life.
She loved each Sandy Hook child as if they were her own
To carry their heart-felt burdens she was prone.
The proof is there when she gave her life trying to protect these precious gems
It only befitting that she enters the gates of heaven with them.
With Jesus sitting there smiling with His arms open wide
Saying, "Welcome Mary, you're home now, so come on inside".
So the life of Mary Sherlach let us celebrate
The woman who had the ability, with all classes of people, to communicate.
Through her family and friends her memory will live on as will her spirit and character
And through them she will be remembered from now ‘til ever after.
So let me leave you with one last thought
To help cope when feeling lonely and distraught.
It's okay to weep for Mary whom you loved so much
It's okay to need to see her smile and yearn for her loving touch.
It's okay to show anger and shed a river of tears
It's all part of the healing process to help cope with the loneliness and fears.
So bow your head in the most earnest prayer and say
Thank you dear God, ‘ere the time be so short, for sending her my way.”

Mary, our church began Lent last night with each of us receiving a cross with a person to pray extra for. I'm praying for you and your family and friends. It became obvious to me very quickly what a wonderful and caring person you are. Please continue to watch over the children and your family and friends as I know you love to do so much.

Lastnight i just thought about all the children and i cried. Whats this world coming to? Like everyone else this event has taken its toll on me emotionaly. It had me questioning god and everything else. I went to bed upset and in my dreams the women mary was standing there in a cream colored off white dress pants with a matching blazer looking imaculately dressed just smiling at me like i should smile to. I dont remember dreams much but this one seemed real and i took comfort in it and wanted to share it. My prayers go out to her family.
I want to offer my sympathies to Mary who is a true hero and someone i respect greatly.I hope one day I will be able to join her and she is severely missed.

I offer my condolences and my heartfelt sympathy to the family, she was a beautiful person and a true hero for all the lives she saved, you are in my thoughts and my prayers
This is a video tribute I made for the families, victims, the community of Newtown, and all who were impacted by this senseless tragedy. I'm at a loss for words and felt that this was the only way that I could fully express myself. My heart is particularly heavy this Christmas Eve and I ache for each of these beautiful children, the teachers and faculty who lost their lives trying to protect them, and their families for not being able to spend it together this year. Rest in Peace Mary and may God bless all of you.
Mary is also the mother of the Christ. Mothers always sacrifice the most. Let not our Hearts be weary but remember that she gave the ultimate sacrifice for the children in a job she loved. When I drive by the Finger Lakes I will think of her
and know she is with mother mary comparing notes. Let it Be. BELIEVE
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
May our loving Heavenly Father comfort and heal you in this time of sorrow.

I'm sorry that I can't be there for you and your family.
Mary was one of the mutitude of everyday heros, they rarely get recognition but make a difference. Your wife helped children and families. That's heroic. According to St Francis, there is not greater gift that to give your life to a friend. Mary went beyond that in giving her life to strangers. A greater hero in my mind who dies a hero's death.
God bless you all!
There are no words for your loss - My thoughts and prayers are with you & your family...
So sorry for your loss,our thoughts and prayers are with you, A true hero may you rest in peace Mary.
To family and friends of Mary,
Anguished Hearts Don't Despair
A parent's worst nightmare
became your reality this day.
Feelings of unimaginable despair;
so many unanswered questions …
Why my child?
Did God need another angel?
If so, how unloving it would be of him
to take our cherished one, our joy!
So many unfulfilled dreams,
plans for the future; tomorrows gone.
Lives changed forever by the loss
of one so dear, so tender, so young.
Death leaves such emptiness of heart,
regrets of not giving that last hug;
feeling the warmth and tenderness of a kiss;
saying: “I love you” just one more time!
Have hope! He has promised an end to such sadness.
He hears the prayers of the brokenhearted one.
He will actually swallow up death forever,
And He will certainly wipe the tears from all faces!
Memories cherished and faith in a better future,
Will help one cope with the pain of today.
A promised paradise when all will be reunited
with dear, loved ones. Life without end at last!

With a very heavy heart, my condolences go out to this family. Our nation as a whole will never forget this little soul.
you are all too young to have been taken away
those you left behind will have to stay
and think of the day you had to die
and become angels in the sky.
never a first kiss, a graduation or marriage you will share
it is all useless and is so unfair!
the horrific tragedy touched the hearts of those far and near
so many strangers had shed many tears
for the lives of children and adults were selfishly taken away
on what was supposed to be a typical day.
Heros were born that very sad day
some managed to live, while others were taken away
no matter where we where at the time
it will forever be a memory in our mind
a piece of heart was destroyed for each and every family
but somehow taught us to love freely and gratefully
there are many extra angels watching over us now
saying it's ok to move foward somehow
I hear God saying, "Thy good and faithful servant, come on home and I will make you ruler over many.
Your loss has been felt across the world. It has touched all people, especially parents of young children. In Canada I have seen this tragic loss bring tears to people young and old. Your children and loved ones are now Angels watching over others so this tragedy never happens again. Find strength knowing that others around the world feel your loss and are mourning along with you. May these Angels Rest In Peace.
Rest in peace. May God comfort your family.
May God and His Angels comfort all of you
Mary is one of the true heroes, protecting our children on a daily basis and watching out for their safety. We owe her many thanks, please know that the world is grieving with you during this challenging time.

Mary, for your courageousness and love towards the care of children, you are a hero. It is people like you that make us parents happy to know we live our children in your care for the time we can not be there with them, we have caring heroes that take care of that for us. I am so sorry for your loss. As I have been crying for your loss, please note that she was very heroic in this tragedy. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this time.
As Mary's Special Educator at SHS until 1999, I remember her as efficient, reliable, and a great meeting leader. I remember her multicolored, highlighted calendar which identified school commitments, home commitments and those chores her husband would do. She was beautiful, fun and professionally dressed as well. And she was very proud of her smart, talented daughters. I send condolences to her family from my shocked and grieving heart.
May our prayers be with the families that lost loved ones
