To the family and friends of Sherley: Please accept my deepest condolences on your loss. Sherley (and Curtis) were wonderful people, and both very dear to me in the time that I worked with them through the Buckingham Active Seniors. When I learned of Sherley's passing I was deeply saddened, yet at the same time, felt truly blessed to have shared some wonderful times together with her. She made a tremendous difference to those who were fortunate enough to cross paths with her. I will cherish and celebrate the fond memories that I have of her and hope that your heavy heart will be able to rejoice in kind as well.

My childhood memories of Mrs.Sherley and family were the cookouts in Baltimore,Md. Where, I was taught to play spades with the family. Good food, good people ,GOOD TIMES.I know she will be missed.
