Sheryl was my Unit Secretary at Winchester House. She was caring, compassionate and kind, and always had the well being of patients, families and staff uppermost in her mind. She was wonderful to work with. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

I am sorry to hear about your love one passing. When we lose a love on in death we feel so helpless, and I know that God will " surround and comfort" you at this difficult time. We all look forward to seeing our love ones again in paradise.

I worked with Sheryl for 4 years. She was always a beacon of light and humor when you were feeling down or frustrated. She had the answers to almost everything you asked of her. I will miss her beautiful smile and her warm, loving nature. RIP Sheryl
