Sheryl was my aunts bestfriend. I knew her VERY well. She will be missed very much. She didn't deserve what happened at all, she was one of the nicest people I knew. Sheryl was a very caring person. My aunt knew her all her life, she was the kindset person she had ever known. She was a wonderful mother as well. Sh eloved her daughter very much. I thought of Sheryl as another aunt. She will be greatly missed. But she is in a better place. R.I.P ILY SHERYL !!

Our sympathy goes out to the family. There are no adequate words of comfort to ease the pain, but your memories will keep Sheryl close to your hearts. All of our family had ties to Sheryl from work. She will be missed.

Kelly and family, although I hadn't seen Sheryl in a long while, we worked together daily for over 18 months. She was a wonderful, kind and most creative lady, who on more than one occasion made me look like a hero with my customers. Sheryl was very gifted and a major asset to the Flyer staff. My heart was broken when I heard the devastating news of her horrible passing.
I know each of you are questioning everything now but I pray that your family is as strong in faith as Sheryl was. God will get you through this most difficult time.
Kelly was the light in her mothers life, she most especially looked forward to picking her up and seeing her at the end of our more hectic days. No words could ever express my deepest sorrow on the loss of your mother, child and sister.
May God help you daily in this long struggle you are facing and keep you close in His arms, my prayers are with each of you

Although I never had the pleasure to meet Sheryl I have heard so much about her from her sister Liz. Everyone in the office knows all about Kelly Shea as her Aunt Liz raves about her all the time. Liz loves that little girl as if she were her own and I know that she will be a wonderful mother to her. No words can express my sorrow for your family but I know that Liz has strong faith in the Lord and this will help her get through this difficult time. My prayers are with you and I pray for you to find peace. Kelly Shea is lucky to have such a loving family and I wish you the best.

I have known Sheryl and her family for more than 10 years through our church. I will always remember her as a sweet, loving, and very helpful person. There is no doubt in my mind that God is taking care of her in a very special place where we will all join her in the future. No doubt she is being a wonderful blessing where she is now as she was with us.

Blessings & Love to her and her family,

I work at Lime Street Elementary. I am the Kindergarten Para. I have loved Kelly since she was in Kindergarten. I talk to her nearly everyday at dismissal while we wait for Happy Days van to come in the afternoon. I was heartbroken to hear the horrifying news and tradegy that Kelly and your family has had to endure. Kelly is such a sweet child and if there is anything I can do for you/her please let me know.
I would be happy to help with clothes, shoes, toys...whatever she may need. She has told me about her new mommy and daddy and big brother. My name is Brenda Hart and my e-mail is:
My prayers are with your family, I am SO SORRY for your loss.
