Oh, My Dear Sweet Friend ... Sadly Reached Her End ... I wanted SO badly to talk to with you, but late last night ... Chris broke this news. My Deepest and Sincerest Condolences go Out to My Dear Sweet Friend's Husband and Dear Sweet Friend, Chris Tharpe, Brother and Friend, Rodney Riggleman, Mom Riggleman and Best Friend to Sheri and Dear Friend, Carolyn Thomas and and Many Other's. My Love 'n My Hug's 'n My Prayer's Are With Each One of You from Me! I am here if any of you needs to talk. God Bless Us All! So many of us are going through some difficult times ... so much that nobody really knows ... and some of us are just sick of being sick ... but we do realize just how BLESSED we are (that though at times it is SO hard to even move in the morning's), that if most of us are ABLE to put both feet on the floor and get up to a new found day, though life is precious, life can certainly also be challenging, hard, tough, difficult ... with feelings of uncertainty, but when we have God in our view and in our walk ... we are BLESSED BY GOD and we are given this inner strength to somehow ... MOVE ... MOVE FORWARD, He wants us ALL ... so an awakening to a brand new day, with new found friend's, a few old ones and so many in our memories ... we ARE truly blessed. We TRULY KNOW who our REAL true friend's are, when they've NEVER given up on us and we JUST KNOW they never will! They are ALWAYS there to cheer us on and to cheer us up. Sheri was exceptional in her ways of being there and cheering other's on ... she was cheering me on. I saw her my 2nd day after moving here, and she was one of my only old friend's that from that very day, would continually invite, not only me, but my bes5 friend, Arno too, over to gather together in fun times with Chris and their friends. I hadn't seen Sheri in MANY YEAR'S living here in Michigan and so it was like the time away from here never existed ... 😢 Though I was blinded by other's upon my return ... Sheri was ALWAYS honest and straight forward with me. If anyone KNOWS ME WELL, not many here anymore, but they know my issue's with HONESTY. Sheri was very positive ... and she GREATLY tried to helped me see and understand how letting other's hurt us, will truly affect us and so, she was someone that shared a great deal of silliness and emmense laughter. I can't explain it ... IF YOU KNEW SHERI, YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY! Sheri would always be compassionate, she would cry with me, yet she would find the RIGHT WORDS FOR ME ... and then she'd have an ultimate solution to FREEING me from trauma and hurt and from those that never let old stuff go away. Though we know we've all had our struggles and troubles ... Sheri was one that would LOVE YOU, if you loved her and still love you, even iff you didn't ... but she would move forward in HAPPINESS. If I ever needed her or Chris, they'd be right there. I knew this ... she also knew this of me. We were the same in not ever wanting to burden other's. So, those friends and family members that step up to the plate and JUST KNOW, those are the ones to be truly grateful for. My memories with Sheri goes way back ... but my clearest memory is hearing her always call me "Kimmie", and sometimes "Kimberly" when she meant what she said and wanted me to MAKE SURE I HEARD HER CLEARLY. 🙂☺😊 But NEVER did she call me, Kim! 😊 I wrote Sheri a LONG letter several months ago about Jesus Christ and Our Heavenly Father ... and I prayed deeply that Sheri read every word. And her message back to me, let me know that she had, without me EVER having to ask her or make sure she read my every word. She read MY PRAYER out loud several times she said, and that was when I felt a relief that my words to her through Jesus, was my job to share with her. Sheri was SO POSITIVE. We ALWAYS want the BEST for ALL of Our Dear Sweet Friend's and Family Member's, no matter where they are ... and so I know that Sheri would want us ALL to be Happy in Thinking of Her Silly, Crazy, Funny and Hilarious Ways that She's Made Many of Us, or All of Us Laugh and Maybe Even Cry! Christmastime is Especially a Very Hard Time of The Year as We Remember Our Loved Ones That Have Passed Away, But to Lose a Loved One At This Time, Makes it Especially Hard and Difficult. My Love, Hug's 'n Prayer's are With Sheri's Loved Ones and Dearest of Friend's! God Bless Each 'n Everyone of Us! xoxo

Oh Sheri, where do I even begin with our memories as we shared many. From working together at Curtis Mathis, to driving in your car singing Welcome to the Jungle and 5 Minutes of Funk, to hanging out almost every day after work & our days off, to you introducing me to Danny. You have never been far away from my mind even though life took us in different directions. You are such a big part of my life for so many reasons and I am heartbroken. May your family and friends find comfort and peace in the minutes, days, and years to come. You will always hold a special place in my heart.
