Ruth G Claxton

I will so miss Sherry, her sweet smile and that little wink she gave with her smiles. She was such a strong person limited only by the debilitating disease controlling her body. She always was there reaching out a helping hand even though her body could not follow though. She and I had a special bond and found it so easy to commiserate, sometimes and share happiness at others. I will miss her. My sympathy and compassion go out to my son Art and their family and the family as a whole, united in love. We shall meet again on God's Celestial Shores!
