  3. Hi Mom. It’s me Sherry ❤ I know you told me not to cry , an I promise I’m trying not to.. It feels so different without you here. My daily routine isn’t the same and has me all messed up. When I’m not in your room an I pass by I look in to check on you out of habit. And that’s when it hits me. I miss you so much! But I’m happy you’re not suffering anymore. The memories throughout my childhood will forever be in my heart. But the memories of the past year with you is something I’ll treasure forever as well. I love you an I’ll talk and visit as much as I can! Love you always. Your daughter Sherry xoxo
