  1. Chuck. Glenn, Melba and Freda….My prayers and thoughts go out to you and the entire family. Sherry and I drifted apart as we raised our families but the memories and good times we had in high school will always remain.
    Praying that God will hold you all especially close at this time of loss.

  2. I remember playing with Sherry and Melba at either my daddy’s blacksmith shop or the ice house. I was very sad to hear about my childhood friend. Words alone are meaningless but my hope is that knowing she was loved and will be missed will bring a measure of comfort. A friend, Loretta Owens

  3. Chuck & Family:
    I was very saddened to hear about Sherry. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  5. My heartfelt sympathies go out to Sherry’s family.

    Num 6:24 “The LORD bless you and keep you;
    Num 6:25 The LORD make His face shine upon you,
    and be gracious to you;
    Num 6:26 The LORD lift up His countenance upon you,
    and give you peace.”
