My prayers and thought with the family and friends. I too am a sister-in-law to Helen Brown, one of Sherry's sisters and have known Sherry almost as long. Have several good memories throughout the years RIP Sherry.

Sherry"s family my condolences to you. I am Helen's sister-in-law, but knew Sherry before Helen. April and my oldest son went to kindergarten together. God Bless all of you.
