To all of Sherry's family and friends. My husband Bob and I are so very sorry for your loss. Sherry was my niece. We did not have the pleasure to know her well, but we had a wonderful visit with her at her mother's funeral. She was a very sweet lady...and I know she will be missed by all of her friends and family. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers. Bob and Karen Ahrens
