This memorial is made in memory of my loving Beautiful sister Sherrie... Please sign guest book.
Sherrie is survived by her Mom, Doris. Two sisters Debbie, and Lori. She has one nephew Dominic and his wife Vangie. Two nieces Alisha, and Vanessa. She has two great nephews John, and Christopher. Six great nieces Estrella, Ebony, Jesina, Leeanne, Alexia and Daniella. Two doggie nieces Chica and Bambi.
She is also survived by two Aunts June and Sandi, one Uncle David and many cousins.
In addition she had a special friend Rick, who she love to have come over on weekends to cook for her and visit, along with his dog Rascal.
She had two friends in her apt building, Georgia and Patsy. Plus many other friends in Denver area.
Sherrie was very friendly and made friends easily. She also had a very fun sense of humor and enjoyed so many things, but especially her music.
Please sign guest book, and come back for updates of photos, etc... Thank you, Lori
||Grief be mine, I ask you so,
If not for you, I wouldn't know,
How life once was and then be still,
How so precious, that death do steal.
Because that grief, won't go away,
Learn to let it have its way.
The link to love, a precious one,
Is met with grief and still not done.
The days do come, and nights do go,
Grief will stay as time is so.
And so a loved one passes on,
And grief comes in and carries on.
Does grief get better, I will ask,
It's hard to say, while at its task.
There is grief to help us cope,
There is God to give us hope.
Grief will surely go away,
On that glorious heaven's day.
But while its here, there's just one thing,
Pray our Lord, for peace he'll bring.
Sherrie was a big fan of Maxines. So I thought it only right to add some of her little blurbs to her page. I think she also was in comics as crabby roads. I like how she is so cocky in a fun kind of way. I use to print these up for Sherrie as she had plan to do a collage.
Meaning of the Dove
Security and maternal instinctiveness. Sensitive to emotions. Can assist in releasing trauma stored in our cellular memory.
Meaning of the Dog
Holds the key to unconditional love. Serve selflessly. Able to forgive freely. Teacher
This is shelter where we will celebrate Sherrie's life and the memory of her to each of us. If you notice to right the day I decided it was the one in park I wanted that light shined down on it, and that is white steak on photo. I took that as her approval of spot. There is more info on the memorial under Memorial for Sherrie.
To My Dearest Family:
Some things I'd like to say
but first of all to let you know
that I arrived okay
I'm writing this from Heaven
where I dwell with God above
where there's no more tears
or sadness there
is just eternal love
Please do not be unhappy
just because I'm out of sight
remember that I'm with you
every morning, noon and night
That day I had to leave you
when my life on Earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me
and He said I welcome you
It's good to have you back again
you were missed while you were gone
as for your dearest family
they'll be here later on
I need you here so badly
as part of My big plan
there's so much that we have to do
to help our mortal man
Then God gave me a list of things
He wished for me to do
and foremost on that list of mine
is to watch and care for you
And I will be beside you
every day and week and year
and when you're sad
I'm standing there
to wipe away the tear
And when you lie in bed at night
the days chores put to flight
God and I are closest to you
in the middle of the night
When you think of my life on Earth
and all those loving years
because you're only human
they are bound to bring you tears
But do not be afraid to cry
it does relieve the pain
remember there would be no flowers
unless there was some rain
I wish that I could tell you
of all that God has planned
but if I were to tell you
you wouldn't understand
But one thing is for certain
though my life on Earth is o're
I am closer to you now
than I ever was before
And to my very many friends
trust God knows what is best
I'm still not far away from you
I'm just beyond the crest
There are rocky roads ahead of you
and many hills to climb
but together we can do it
taking one day at a time
It was always my philosophy
and I'd like it for you too
that as you give unto the World
so the World will give to you
If you can help somebody
who is in sorrow or in pain
then you can say to God at night
my day was not in vain
And now I am contented
that my life it was worthwhile
knowing as I passed along the way
I made somebody smile
So if you meet somebody
who is down and feeling low
just lend a hand to pick him up
as on your way you go
When you are walking
down the street
and you've got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps
only half a step behind
And when you feel the gentle breeze
or the wind upon your face
that's me giving you a great big hug
or just a soft embrace
And when it's time for you to go
from that body to be free
remember you're not going
you are coming here to me
And I will always love you
from that land way up above
Will be in touch again soon
P.S. God sends His Love
