Not sure what to say?

I just learned of Sherry's passing in the State Bar magazine. I was privileged to work with Sherry for a common client a few years ago. She was bright, lighthearted and exceedingly committed. I remember fondly a few meetings in her "gallery/office." I thought that was just the coolest thing. I knew her briefly, but she taught me quite a lot and she made a large impact. My sincerest condolences.

I met Sherry and Mike while working with farmworkers in Oklahoma on a Reggie Fellowship. After I returned to Tucson and opened a private practice, I was happily surprised one day to see them in the office next to the one I was visiting. A long friendship developed. Sherry would often consult me on criminal matters for her clients. I just read of Sherry's passing in the State Bar Journal. She was a wonderful progressive voice of which there are now too few. She will be sorely missed.

I have just learned of Sherry's passing. The last time we spoke she had just returned from Cuba. I will always have fond memories of her law office gallery.

My sincere condolences. Sherry was a remarkable woman, caring, dedicated, funny. Michael, I'm sorry I haven't kept in touch, big hug. I thought of Sherry recently when I was in Cuba and bought some art, her stories live on.
Love, Sarah

Sherry was one of the leaders in the early days of the efforts to extend meaningful legal services to migrant farmworkers across the country. She helped train and mentor hundred of young lawyers and other advocates who joined in this effort.

Sherry was a true warrior for justice. She was one of the bravest people I've ever known. She never waivered in her commitment to help people who needed help....never. No matter how sick (or tired), she fought to give every bit of herself that she could, to do what needed to be done. She was remarkable and I will really miss her.

It is very sad to hear about Sherry's passing. She is still an inspiration to how we should live and treat one another. So very sorry.

We are very sad. The world lost a very caring soul
Who always was looking out for others. We are proud to have known her.
