I always considered Sheri my sister by heart ! We shared so many good times when our children were young and as they grew ,We laughed together and cried together.. so many memories ! Then it seemed like , life got busy and in the way and we didn't see each other as much. But when we did, it was like it was before. the love and talking and sharing was like we were never apart...I miss her already so much but I know, I will see her again because we are both born again believers in Jesus Christ !!! So knowing one day we will see each other again gives me comfort .I love you Sheri !
