The world just got a little dimmer without the light and love from Sherry. Sherry had so much love for everyone she met, and was always willing to lend a hand to help anyone in need. Her family was easily her favorite thing, and it was such a joy to be with her at livestock shows, rooting on Troy and Taylor. Ill miss her friendship, and seeing her at the shows. We love you Stanley and O’Bryon Families! You are in the prayers of the Bellinger and Wempe Clan!
