Sherry was a truly gracious person who put all others above herself. She was always there to lend a hand or even an ear, and was always up for a challenge ,especially trying to teach this one how to loom a pair of slippers. A great friend, coworker, and all around beautiful soul. She will truly be missed by all and I will always treasure the many wonderful memories. Till we meet again my friend.
