I have just heard about Sherry's passing, and am so sorry. I shared an office with Sherry her last 8 years in Beverly. We shared a lot, but mostly about our two wonderful families and many adventures . We laughed all the time! Sherry bought an "easy" button from Staples one year and that became a great mood breaker. We shared some common interests-- cooking, knitting and our love for Mexico. I will always smile when I think of her. My sympathy to you all. Barbara Maver
