Benny Sherman Memorial Fund
Please help us raise up this precious family during these difficult days by making a donation to cover Benny's funeral costs and grant Emmerlee and Marty a financial cushion while they grieve the loss of their son. All donations will go directly to the Sherman Family.
We continue to keep Emmerlee, Marty, Liv and Nick in our thoughts and prayers.
Emmerlee's post on Facebook:
Dear friends and family,
Early this morning my son Benny passed away suddenly due to respiratory complications.
Benny was truly one of a kind. He worked at the movie theater in Burnsville and was the biggest movie buff around. When he wasn’t watching movies or TV he was playing video games and chattin’ people up on Facebook. He will be remembered by those who knew him as a goofy, outgoing, positive dude. We can only hope that he’s walking around heaven and watching an advanced screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
For those who would like to pay their respects to Benny and our family there will be a visitation at the White Funeral Home in Apple Valley on Sunday March 8th from 1-4 pm. The funeral will be held at Unity Christ Church in Golden Valley on Monday, March 9th at 11 am with a 1 hour visitation prior to the service with a reception to follow.
Thank you so much for all the love and support we've already felt from family and friends during this difficult time.
**I am a friend of Emmerlee's and in a women's photography group called STAY STRONG with her. Emmerlee has been tireless in her kindness to me and countless others in STAY STRONG. It is now our turn, in this very sad time, to help Emmy and her family. If you need to contact me directly, you can do so through GoFundMe. I promise to get back to you as soon as I can.
The Sherman Family has surrounded themselves with kind, caring, loving, and amazing people over many years, and this little family has covered this family in love in a difficult time.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. If I could hug each and every one of you, I would.
Emmerlee wants you all to know that they feel your good thoughts and prayers and are so grateful for all of you.
Please keep sharing so that the Sherman family has one less worry.
We found out yesterday that Benny's funeral is $8,200. We would love to be able to cover that cost for the family.
Please continue to share Benny's beautiful story with others. Watch a good movie today. Say hello to an old friend. And please keep Benny's friends and family in your thoughts.
