My prayers are with Sheryl's family at this most difficult time! I knew she had leukemia but did not realize it had gotten so bad. I feel terrible I never got out to visit her. She loved cooking and was excellent at that and always liked to do something delicious for the racing season and I know was so proud of that nephew of her's involved in racing! May you rest in peace my friend!

Our prayers are with Sheryl's family and friends. May she be resting in peace with the perpetual light shining brightly upon her. Sheryl was a special individual with a kind heart, a love of racing and a passion for creating wonderful meals that she so freely shared with others. We send a very special thank you for a very special friendship.

Sheryl was a great neighbor! She always had the greenest yard on the block. Sheryl loved her dogs, and loved showing off her yellow lab, Storm, to the neighbors. Sheryl always had stories to tell of her motivational trips that State Farm sent her on. We attended one of her ginormous food extravaganzas at her house, and were amazed at her generosity as all were welcome, especially her racing friends she considered family. She will be sorely missed.
