Our Sherry

Sherry smiles the prettiest smile

At me, and you and you and you

Sherry has been kind awhile

To me, and you and you and you

Life to her has not been fair

Of sadness she is still aware

Yet we see her going everywhere

Her hand outstretched to care

Or offer up a silent prayer

For those in want and need

Her sweet touch they surely heed

Sherry’s birthday is June 10th

We wish her Happy Birthday

And passage of time that helps to heal

Then gives her courage to reveal

A well-loved Sherry who is merry…
