  8. Steve, Monica and family, We haven’t seen Sherry in years and then in December your family made the trip to New Castle and we had a chance to visit with your family at the Christmas party. We are so glad we had the chance to catch up on her life , to talk and laugh with Sherry and we are grateful that we have that memory to treasure. Your family has our deepest sympathy. Our love and prayers are with all of you. Judy and Nick Mylo

We pray that you find comfort in our Creator’s promises to reunite us with our beloved ones again, in a youthful world, where the causes of pain and sorrow will be a thing of the past. How exciting it will be to see her again doing all the things she loved. Forever find comfort reading Isaiah 25:8, which promises that our tears of mourning will end when death is done away with. Our sincerest condolences to the Family.
