Mrs. Sherry was so very caring and loving with a big heart. She may have not been that mother who said I love you to her children often, but know as we knew, she loved her children more
than anything in the world. Her siblings were very dear to her and she was their protector by all means. She LOVED her music (especially gospel) with her headphones, harmonica, and her preferred drink LOL! The neighborhood kids always knew about the candy bowl, which everyone still goes to.
