I used to deliver meals on wheels to Sharon. She was a precious person, and I always looked forward to seeing her. My sincerest condolences to you all. ❤️
Aunt Sherry, you’ll be terribly missed. Thank you for being the sister my Grandmother always needed, and loving her so well. I didn’t know you as well as I would have liked, but you were always kind to me. Rest in God’s love.
I remember her from high school as a sweet and caring person. She treated everybody well. Blessing to the family. — Toin.
