  1. I met Sherry when I started with DHS 29 years ago. She is one of the first people I met.
    You won’t be surprised at the things I say but Sherry is such an absolute lovely person. A Christian. A lady. A sinceré friend. She is an encourager and she has a delightful fun sense of humor.
    I write all this in present tense because we live on after our early passing and we know heaven rejoices as she is celebrating now with our King!
    My sincere sympathy to the family. I pray for your comfort and peace during this time of transition.

  2. saw in !st Presbyterian News Letter that Sherry had passed and Henry you have been ill. So sorry for all of you. Haven’t seen Chantiz in a long time so have had no updates on your family.
    Please know how sad we are for she was such a neat person. Always a smile and time to visit. it’s such a hard thing to deal with and there are no guide books to follow. Through prayer, friends, family, and time may it become more tolerable for all of you. May God walk with each of you.

    If You Could See Where I Have Gone

    If you could see where I have gone,

    The beauty of this place,

    And how it feels to know you’re home,

    To see the Savior’s face.

    To wake in peace and know no fear,

    Just joy beyond compare.

    While still on earth you miss me yet

    You shouldn’t want me there,

    If you could see where I have gone.

    If you could see where I have gone,

    Have made the trip with me,

    You’d know I didn’t come alone,

    The Savior came with me.

    When I awoke, He was by my side,

    And reached down His hand.

    Don’t worry over those you love,

    For I’m now with you.

    And don’t you know with you at home,

    They’ll long to be here, too.

    If you could see where I have gone

    And see what I’ve been shown,

    You’d never know another fear,

    Or feel alone.

    You’d marvel at the care of God

    His hand on every life,

    And realize He really cares,

    And bears with us each strife.

    And that He weeps when one is lost

    His heart is filled with pain.

    But, oh the joy when one comes home,

    A child is at home again.

    If you could see where I have gone,

    Could stay awhile with me

    Could share the things God has made

    To grace eternity.

    But, no, you wouldn’t ever leave

    Once heaven’s joy you’d known.

    You couldn’t bear to walk earth’s paths

    Once heaven was your home,

    If you could see where I have gone.

    If you could see where I have gone,

    You’d know we’d meet some day.

    And though I’m parted with you now

    That I’m “just away,”

    So thank you, thank you everyone,

    For living for the Lord

    For encouraging me to love Him

    To trust in His word.

    And now that I’m home with Him

    Secure in every way,

    I’m waiting here at Heaven’s door,

    To greet you some sweet day.
