Guest Book

Not sure what to say?

Sharon was a very classy beautiful woman. I always loved chatting with her and loved my stories of funny happenings. Seems we would always run into eachother at Tuesday Morning. I shall miss her sweet smile. I'm sure shes dancing in heaven with Rod as I'm writing this!

Our dear Lord holds Sherry close and gives her eternal life. I am blessed to have fun memories of Sherry over the years. Sending my sincere prayers to you all for strength and peace in the days ahead. Love you my dear friends Pixie, Buzz and family.

I know how sad you must be to have lost your beloved sister, Danae. I never had a sister, but you'd be the closest as one could ever be to me. You and Sherry were uniquely beautiful together. Only you can know all the Joy's you've seen and all the memories you shared. Celebrate Sherry's life and know she's in a better place reuniting with all the others that are greeting her.

I worked with Sharon at Great Lakes ... a very kind lady and always a smile on her face.

Sharon was a lovely person and friend. May she rest in peace.

Sherry (smiling), me, and her dog Bingo. Somewhere between 1949--1950.

My heart is broken at the loss of my dear friend. I pray that the strong faith your family shares will give you a sense of peace through this difficult time. Lots of love, Frannie
