  6. To family and friends, I’m so sorry for the loss of a wonderful man. He was a good friend. We became friends in 1992 when I moved across the street from him on Festus lane. I lived there for 6 years. He took many family photos of my children, and my wedding pictures when I remarried. I wish I had known he was so I’ll. I would have made a point to spend more time with him. I will miss you my friend !! My prayers and thoughts are with you Jennifer and your family. Love to all, Sherry.
