Dear joan and family, I am so sorry to read of the passing of your daughter Sheri. I really didn't know Sheri but I remember you Joan from our Palmer school days. I just wanted to say how sorry I was to read of your daughter and am keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. I took the Palmer Journal for years as we moved around out of state so now I read of Nebraska happenings via the computer. May your feel God's presence with you daily as you walk through this hardship. Cathy Stone Tyson
