    Thinking of you all. I have had surgery and cannot show my sympathy. I want you to know that I have had her on my prayer list for peace and comfort. I will continue to pray for you all. I played the piano at First Christian Church and enjoyed knowing Sherry. What a special friend.

    Sherry was one of a few friends I had in High School at Ashland MS. We both became nurses. I had not seen Sherry for about 15 years. I visited her at the home where she grew up in Ashland. I learned through Facebook about a year ago of her illness. I did not know that her illness had progressed this far. I am so very sorry for your loss. May God comfort her loved ones and keep you in his hands.
