No one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. I am deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Sherry. She was such a sweet, kind and beautiful woman. I was so lucky to have the opportunity to meet her and get to know her through the Relay for Life events.
My deepest condolences to you and your family.

Please accept my condolences on the loss of Sherry. I got to know her when I worked for Lundeen Floor Covering of Cokato. What a sweetheart. Sorry that she left us so young.
I just now heard about Sherry’s passing, it was just about time for one of our phone calls to each other to check on each of our parents. She was a wonderful caregiver to her mother Margaret and her children and grandchildren and husband. She worked very hard. So sad, it breaks my heart.
