She will be sorely missed. I worked with and was in the academy behind her class. She was a long distance runner that never broke a sweat!!!!!!

Girl do I miss you with your hilarious self. This girl always kept something jovial going on. Kept us laughing. I was glad when she came around or stopped in my office for the day before leaving the building, making my day. I remember the day of (End of Watch day) she came into my office clowning as usual, and then she left. She came back looking all over my desk like she had lost something. I asked her what was she looking for and she stated, "I dropped something". I asked her what did she drop maybe I could help her find it. She then picked up something and behold it was her drug evidence. I told her now what if my boss had found that on my desk, and how was I going to explain it. We laughed up something that day. But, I am so happy I got to share laughter with her that day and every day I that I did come in contact with her. She made my day!! Miss You!

I guess you have a new zone partner in Heaven! I have no doubt you'll have good times together. Rest well, sisters, we've got the watch down here!

I never had the pleasure of meeting you but I wear your name on my wrist while I am on duty. I feel that it is God and you (in fact all the fallen offficers) that protects me. Often I am asked about the person whose name I wear so proudly, I then tell them your story.

No greater love is shown then one who gives their life to safe anotherr.

Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.

We here at APD miss you Sherry, I recall the times we all would line up and get ready for Warrant Raids, and you would often joke about how my K-9 Partner Bandit was crazy like his handler. I know Bandit is up in heaven with you now, and I know he's watching over you, and youre caring for him. I miss you Sherry, youre in my thoughts and prayers. Love Derrick

Sherry I can't believe its been 10 years ago today since you left us much too soon. We have thought of you every day since, and feel your presence more than your absence.

I see your picture everyday when I arrive at work and think of you going down those stairs.

I remember your coming to grand jury, never a no-show, always professional.

I wish you still were here.


April 6, 2010

You ran across my mind today. Then I remembered today was the day you left us. It's been a long time now, but I still remember that day like it was yesterday. I've since left the agency, but I will always remember you. You were a great Officer, and mentor for the short time I knew you. You are surly missed by many.
