    So many fond memories of Sherry. She was such a presence. I remember going to Worlds of Fun with her and her teasing me when I waddled when I was pregnant. Quack Quack Waddle Waddle I believe was what she said when I walked. The world will be a little less bright with her not in it. So sorry for your loss.

    Sherry would babysit my kids when we came back to visit from the Army. My kids always wanted to go see her and loved being at her house. She was such a wonderful person. Heaven received a true angel.

    I am so sad to hear this. My parents lived near Sherry in Pacific Junction and I know that she was an excellent first responder when my dad had a heart attack. She was a very caring person and I always sat near her on the Class Reunion Float. She will be missed.

    At this really hard time, think about her life, the love she gave, the love she was given, and after the storm passes, just smile and remember how happy she now is.
