Life Story Info
Dear Bryant and Family, I'm sorry for your loss, and am glad that she is out of pain. What a wonderful woman who loved and made everyone happy. She has such a fun way of looking at times - smiling with entertaining facial expressions that would lighten up a day. Knowing a bit of her history, she was so blessed to have Bryant come into her life. I've visited with several of your children, and have seen the love Sherri and Bryant have for you, and you have for them. I'm confident we'll see her again. Paul Smith.
Dear Bryant and family: I am so sorry for your loss. I loved Sherri in our neighborhood in the 25th ward. She was always so willing to help anyone and she was fun and bubbly as she did your hair. She always made me feel lighter after a visit. Your whole family was so fun to be around and watch grow up. Sending my love. Julie Pili
I am so sorry for your loss! Sherry was a very special Lady! I still remember her and Bryant helping me out for Christmas in 1998. It was my first Christmas as a single mom and I had no money for my daughter. They stepped in and helped me! I have known the Green Family for many many years and Sherri will be missed! My heart and prayers go out to the family!
I was so sad to hear of Sherri's passing. I have very fond memories of working with her over the years. Whether she was dropping off evidence or helping out at crime scenes she was always friendly and kind. She will be missed. I hope happy memories help your family through the difficult times ahead, and I will be keeping your family in my thoughts.
I’m so sorry for your loss of dear Sherri. She was so supportive of me when my son died. Her heart connected to mine that day she came to my house, offering condolences. I’ll never be able to explain how precious that was to me. She has a genuinely blessed soul. I never saw her again without getting a big heartfelt hug. I know she’ll be missed. What a devastating loss.
