I had the honor of working for many years with Sherri when she was my beat reporter at the Tribune reporting on children's issues. We shared a love of kids and youth advocacy. I remember her wonderful ethics in reporting and dedication to doing justice to these important subjects. We talked about adoption and having kids later in life (as my precious girls are both adopted.) I remember how joyful she was when her children were born and how much Sheri loved being a mom.

Steve,
Annmarie and I send our thoughts and prayers to you and your kids. We both fondly remember Sherri from our days at Ma Trib and were so sorry to hear about her death. She was such a wonderful person. We will keep you all in our prayers in the weeks and months ahead.

A wonderful soul returns the the heavens. Your warmth and kind-hearted ways will be greatly missed in this world.

I have many fond memories of Sherri from our time together at the Tampa Tribune. May her memory be a blessing.
