I was so saddened to learn that my cousin Sherry passed away last week. Sherry was a kind and loving person who was not only my younger cousin, but my dear friend. Although we lived almost a thousand miles apart we remained close. Throughout all the years Sherry never forgot my birthday. One year Sherry came to visit me in New England over Mother's Day. We had fun being together and Sherry enjoyed seeing a new part of the country and spending time with me and my children. That visit is a wonderful memory for me. I am sorry I can't be there in person to celebrate Sherry's life with the family. Please know you have my deepest sympathy. With much love, Marna Ashman Moorhead
