    I have known Sherry, her mom and sisters my whole life and they have always been life family to me and my family. I was so shocked and saddened to learn of her passing. It was like losing another sister. My thoughts and prayers go to the entire family. Girls, you can all contact me and please do so if there is anything at all I can do for any of you. I love you all. ❤️
