Oh my goodness, I was shocked when my former neighbor (bought Sherry and Larry's house in Oregon) sent a note in my Christmas card that she had seen a notice of Sherry's passing in the Rockford paper. I feel so bad that I didn't know as I would have come for her service for sure! I had just reordered the 2 magazines I have sent her for the past few years. Please accept our sincere condolences for your loss. I hope all of Sherry's children were able to be with her before her death. She was such an inspiration to me....even thru her darkest hours of sorrow and rejection, she never lost faith in her Lord. I am so happy for her that she is finally there with Him, relieved at last from the worries of this world. Mike and I pray that you and all Sherry's family feel the Lord's peace and love envelop you, even as you grieve. Diana Sharboneau
