Mike was sad to hear if Sherrys passing. I have lots of fun memories of all of us in high school. I hope you find peace in your memories of her. Take care. Jim and Vicki Walsh

Dear Mike and family, Our hearts hurt with you as you begin to grieve the loss of your beloved wife and mom. Sherry was a beautiful woman who touched so many lives. She touched ours through the Marriage Encounter community and our parish, and RCIA. It always touched our hearts to see Sherry in the sacristy as an Extraordinary Minister of Communion and to see you as a couple take Communion to Oak Hill. And so many couples that you touched as you worked together to coordinate Pre-Cana in our parish all those years. We know your hearts are heavy and we share your sorrow. May you all be comforted knowing you will someday be together again. But, darn, the waiting is so hard! With our love and prayers, Scott & Karen

So terribly sorry for your loss. Sherry was a sweet lady and wonderful neighbor. May God comfort you in this difficult time.

Dear Mike,
We are so sad and sorry for your loss. We send our love and we are keeping you and all of your family in our thoughts and prayers. Our memories of Sherry will always bring smiles to our faces. Love from all of the Rogers family.

A Beautiful Person with a Beautiful Soul! Your friendship was a blessing and you will be missed. Special prayers for all of you, Mike, Aerica, and Family.

Wishing you peace to bring comfort and courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your heartsI
I met Sherry at my mother's funeral in Missouri 2 years ago and we had a wonderful time talking and sharing our life stories at a lunch following the funeral. She was very kind and loving and had a wonderful sense of humor. My mother was her husband Michael's aunt. I live in Seattle so this was the only time that our life paths brought us together. I am happy that I was able to meet her and to see how happy she made my cousin. They looked like they were a very happy and devoted couple. God bless your family during this difficult time.
