Not sure what to say?

I will always cherish the memories of growing up with Sherry as my best friend. She was always there for me whenever I needed her, and she will always be alive in my heart. She was a wonderful friend, and I enjoy telling the adventures we had together. I pray that God's love and comfort will surround the family during this very sorrowful time.

Mr. Doody, Casey, Caleb, and Emma, I am so sorry for your loss. Your wife and mother was truly a joy to all who came into contact with her. Every time she saw me at a Goochland track or cross country meet, she'd ask about my life and how I was. She really took deep interest in others and made them feel important. When Casey started school at UVA, I could tell how proud Sherry was of her daughter, it was overwhelming. She was so proud and filled with love for all of you, and I know she still...


A lot of years have slipped by and I never did get to meet Sherry or visit your family out East. My loss to be sure. I'm so sorry to hear about this and wish only the best for you and your family during this time.

Dear Dan and Family,
We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear, sweet Sherry. I know you all had built a wonderful life together. Her strong spirit will help guide you all forever. You all are in our prayers.
May God Bless You and Keep You Always.

Your old friend,

Dan and Family,
May the comfort of friends and family give you strength.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Mr. Hammer, Carol, Dan, and family: Sherry's life was very significant to so many people, she left lasting impressions upon those who knew her. She was the most selfless person I have ever known. Words are inadequate at a time like this, but please know that my heart goes out to each of you during your loss.

Dan, I just receieved this sad news today. Please know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dan, Casey, Caleb & Emma. Our prayers and hugs go to you all - we always loved Sherry and we will miss her so much. We are so glad we got to know her so well as part of our Pentwater family. She will forever be a special friend. God bless you all. Michael & Kati Guercio

Remembering Sherry with fondness, and offering my deepest sympathy...
