  • Wow! I am still in so much shock, I remember going to ur house every morning before school so u could put me on the bus on time, and u would always make jokes about how much it smelt like hairspray when I walked in haha! U were such an amazing kind woman all the times u babysat me as a kid, and watching u play the Nentendo and u would throw ur arms up to make Mario jump or eating popcorn shrimp and mac n cheese on the kitchen floor or going to ur moms house while u mowed her lawn and I fell asleep watching Bob Ross paint haha! All amazing memories when I think of u Sherry. U will be missed but never forgotten! Love u lady! My prayers are with u Jarrod and all of ur family!
