  12. I am so sorry Driskell, Cook and Smith Family. I just found out about Sherry. I remember reading Amanda’s Post about a problem but I heard nothing more. I am so out of touch with the news…my fault. Sherry and I were friends on Facebook and for many years prior when I taught her children in Lovelady. Again, so very sorry for your loss. Sherry was a fine, loving, caring woman and she will be fondly remembered.❤️
