    She was such an awesome lady and very dear friend to me. We met when I started work at Ingersoll Rand in 1987 and worked in the same dept. together. The bond was instant and we shared so many long days of hard work and good times together. We both shared a love for our families and talked about them daily as well as our love for our pets. I will cherish my memories of Sherry for the rest of my life. My love and prayers go up to Kim, Larry and their families. One thing we can be sure of she is no longer in pain and back with her Daddy & Mother who she loved so dearly. Rest sweet lady and we will all see you again on day.
    Love & Prayers, Sharon

    I love you sweet cousin. I already missed talking to you. I cant remember now when the level of our conversations stopped whether it was the job change or relationship change but I thought of you often over the years and was always so proud of you and all you had accomplished in life . You always been a beautiful loving friend and cousin. My prayers go out to Larry and Kim along with the rest of the family. May God grant all who knew you peace and comfort!

    Sherry, I can’t believe I am just finding out this news. When I think back on the years we talked almost monthly, I reflect back on conversations and while it hurts to know you are gone, it is comforting to know you are free of physical pains and heartache I know you had carried for years. Your home now is in the Arms of Jesus. I will always remember our talks and love for Larry and Kim. Rest In Peace TIL we meet again.
