I will greatly miss you, Sherry. Sorry for all you have been through. You were a trooper and the best friend one could ever have. I was blessed and you will always hold so many special times and memories for me. Thank you. Looking forward to our reunion.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I know Sherry as her Dad Keith and step mom Doris were my residents at Covenant Living. Sherry was so loving and compassionate to her Dad, and Doris. I can’t express my sadness in her homegoing, but know we will meet again. Prayers for your family. Nurse Connie Wysocki RN
