    My sister, Sheryl, was a loving and devoted wife to her husband, Randy. She was so very proud of her daughters, Genna and April, for all their accomplishments in life. The best had to be with her grandchildren when they came for a visit. Sheryl is at peace now with her dad and brother. We pray that the Lord console Randy and our whole family during this trying time.

    Sending love now, and for the days ahead Randy and family. Loved Sheryl and remember so many fun beach meet ups near the channel with all the salsa, sailing on Sue and Rusty’s Raven, the deep fry party when we set the tree on fire, and so many other great times. Sheryl was always at the center and such a bright light. Fun and warm. Holding you tight Randy.
