    We were so saddened to hear of Sheri’s passing. Sheri was a very unique person and full of life and had a great sense of humor. I always enjoyed seeing her at our quilting guild meetings and talking with her and Bob on their way home down the street from where we live in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Our deepest heartfelt condolences go out to Sheri’s family, and to her husband Bob.

    Bob,
    You have been on a long, hard journey with Sheri these past many months away from home. Now that journey is over and we know you will remember all the good years and fun times you spent with Sheri.

    We will miss her quick wit, sometimes salted with sarcasm, her bright mind and her friendship.

    The years we all spent together in Bible studies, both in Pagosa Springs and in Tucson will be forever cherished.

    Words are inadequate when saying good bye to Sheri, but we know we will see her laughing face again.

    Love in Christ Jesus,

    Ron and Eve
