Sherry was my Manager at Dallas Public Library. She was not only a good manager, she was a dear friend. I will treasure the memory of her beautiful smile, warm personality and swift walk. Sherry was also a wonderful photographer. When she first took up photography, she took a beautiful photo of my daughter, in her wedding gown at the bridal boutique. She gifted me with that (poster sized) photo which still hangs on my den wall today. I thank God for blessing me with Sherry’s friendship. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

Sherry was a joy. I was saddened to read of her death in the DMN today. I worked with her as a volunteer at Renner Frankford Library. With her encouragement we were able to launch a successful Friends group. Please accept my sincere sympathy.

Sherry made my handicapped children welcome in the library she managed (Renner Frankfort branch): when they required extra support, she said “Every child belongs in the library” and told me that she and her staff would help as needed. They are grown now, but I have always remembered that kindness.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
