Lost to COVID: Mama Sheri's Memorial

On January 1st, 2021, we all lost a loved one. Cheryl Ann Smith,  age 59 (October 7, 1961), passed away due to the  COVID-19 virus. As many of you have known "Mama Sheri" for years, she has battled most of her adult life with Multiple sclerosis, also known as MS. She also had her fair share of other health issues in addition to MS, but she never let it define her.  The sudden oncoming of COVID and the even more sudden loss of our mother has left our family and friends devastated.  

Although we are all faced with difficult times during this pandemic, our hope is to send off our mother and her spirit with an amazing memorial services, that we all can share together. For those who will not be able to attend, due to COVID restrictions or travel, we will be streaming the service live, to give each of you an opportunity to say your last words to Mama Sheri.

Never is it easy to ask for assistance, but at this time, we need your help. We ask,  if Mama Sheri impacted your life in anyway and you have the ability to give (literally every cent helps) , we ask you to consider donating.  All proceeds collected from this fundraiser will be used to pay for funeral costs, memorial service, burial, and help bring relief to her children, for any additional costs associated with Mama Sheri's passing. 

Please, if you are unable to donate at this time (we totally understand, these are unprecedented times), we ask for you to share this on all of your social media outlets. Help us spread the word and celebrate the life of Cheryl Ann Smith, the woman who touched everyones lives!

"The world changes year by year, our lives from day to day, but the love and memory of you, will never pass away..."

We love you Mama ❤️❤️❤️
