Gerald and family, I learned to know Sherry about 40 years ago at
the Nazarene Church. She taught my son's Sunday School and
would always send him a card if he missed a Sunday. Sherry was a
glowing, joy-filled lady with a servant's heart. She will be missed by
many. My prayers are with you. May God give you strength for
today and hope for tomorrow.

We were so saddened to learn of Sherry's passing. She was a
wonderful, caring person and friend. We enjoyed a close friendship
with her and Rex for many years while we lived in Michigan. We
especially enjoyed the many motorcycle trips we went on together
and the fun we had. We pray for her and hope you will find love,
strength and peace in this difficult time for you.
