I met and spent lots of time since (Sherry) was 2 years old when I started dating her Uncle . Since we rented the little house at the barn. She and one of my younger sisters were friends and spent lots of time at our house. She grew up and raised 4 awesome daughters, the last few years we spent time with she and Tom. And then after his passing we spent time again an adults. She would surprise Bruce with peach pies that were awesome. And an awesome cook as well. We will miss her special smile and laugh!!She love her girls and the grandkids so much!!💔
