    Dear Gus and Kim
    Lori and I want to share with you how sorry we are for your loss. Aunt Sheryl seems like she was there forever. I remember when Mom would get excited about her coming over for their hair days and a visit. More than once they would fall asleep on the couch heads together. She will be deeply missed by us and many others I am sure.
