God, give Sherry Mc McElroy’s family peace and strength
I was sorry to hear of Mrs. Sherry’s passing. I knew she wasn’t doing well because Anidi was asking for prayers for her. Loosing my Mom was the hardest thing I ever had to go through. It does get easier but longing to see her or hear her voice never goes away.
I pray that God will comfort each of you during this time and give you some peace that Sherry is no longer in pain. Love and prayers.
I’m sure gonna miss you Sherry Sue!! We had our ups n downs ,but no matter what ,we have always been there for each other. Especially the last two years without daddy n uncle jr. I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to you. We sure had some good times and made lasting memories. You were there for me like a mom after I lost my own mom too soon. I’m already missing you like crazy. I love you,Jaime Leah

To the entire McElroy Family,
I am sorry to hear that Mrs. Sherry has passed away. I remember passing her in my car driving fast after school and she would tell my dad I passed her doing 100 mph !! She would make me so mad. I didn’t know that Jr had passed away back in October of 2019, sure spent a bunch of time around him during my teenage years at the “SHOP” there in Rose City. Always enjoyed riding in his trucks as we hauled dirt and gravel. Those were some good times !! I will take this opportunity to say Hi to Steve Moorhead who I also enjoyed riding with when he worked for my dad Lanny, hope your doing well. Also want to say Hi to Tony Moon, you crazy fool. Haven’t seen you in years, hope your doing well also. The entire McElroy family will be in my thoughts and prayers. May GOD bless you all.
Love you mom i wish could talk to you mom I miss you so much good night mom
