Dear Ray and family.

I cannot express how saddened I am about your loss. You guys were truly an extended family as my sisters and I grew up. And I can't express how kind you all have been today. I know it doesn't help but everyone of you guys will be in my family's thoughts and prayers.

God Bless

Dear Ray and family,
The notice of Sherry's passing didn't fully describe her many contributions to the community. Sherry, and you Ray, began the process of preserving Kentwood History by organizing the Historical Society so many years ago. She presented history to elementary school students through her traveling trunks and helped them become more aware of the past. She left a legacy that cannot be measured and the world is a sadder place because of her absence.
God bless and keep all of you.
Esther Middlewood, Chair
Kentwood Historical Preservation Commission.

My deepest sympathy and condolences to the Boisvenue Family (Raymond, Michelle, Steven, Robert, Becky and many more) regarding the loss of your wife, mother and friend. I carry fond memories of "Mrs. Boisvenue" carting Steve and I around as kids, St Mary Magdalen church in Kentwood, cheese Pringles and Hot Pockets and Sharon babysitting my oldest daughter as a toddler. Between work and family and her volunteered time, Mrs. Boisvenue was a very busy lady, but I am sure she felt blessed in knowing that she was making a difference in various lives. She left a lasting impression and was an example of someone who puts others before herself. May she be in a better place, watching over her family and friends. She will be greatly missed.

I am so sad that Sharie has left us, but I'm sure she si so happy now. She certainly shared her gifts of king with the special needs young people at St. John Vianney Church. What a wonderful example she was to all of us.
God bless Sharie and her family.
