I am so at a loss for words. I will miss her laugh and the way her dry sense of humor made me laugh. Sheri and I worked together in the same building we would run into each other several times a day & we always took a few minutes to chat. She will be so missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Rest in Peace Sheri
