Sherwin was a devoted family man. He was so wise and knowledgeable. He always gave great advice.

You were the best Dad a girl could ever hope for. You were always there for me when I needed you no matter what. You always gave the wisest advice. You would help anyone you could. You hardly ever complained unless it was warranted. You had the biggest heart. You are greatly missed. Enjoy your ride in heaven. I love you more.  Love always and forever, Amanda.



We loved you so much. We loved when you came to hang out with us. We had some good holidays together. We remember the time you and Nana Dawn picked us up to go hang out. We came back with huge oversized stuffed Easter rabbits and bears. Mom’s face was priceless. Katelynn and Ashlynn, xoxo.
