Sherie and I were good friends in Jr. High School. I have many fond memories of the two of us just being young teenagers. Over the years I have tried to find her. Please know that I am keeping her friends and family in my prayers. She is now at peace in heaven. May God bless each one of you. Sincerely, Linda Houchin Schoonover

I can't begin to express my condolences for your loss. Know that we all are sharing in your grief. Me and my brothers were blessed and were accepted in her home like part of the family. She was very kind and to put up with all of us at once, very understanding. Our thoughts and prayers are with you always.
