  1. CandleImageMy heart goes out to the girls. Or should I say the three j’s as Savanna and Cheyenne would say. Rest In Peace my friend.

  2. CandleImageI met Sherry about 20 years ago when I began shopping at Kroger in Dunwoody. Sherry was truly one in a million. She was always
    happy, upbeat and helpful to the customers at Kroger, in fact,
    she was the backbone of the store and could do any job she was given
    and she did it well. Sherry was an outstanding employee who was
    loved and admired not only by her co-workers but most of all by the
    customers. I have had many conversations with other customers and the management staff of that store and everyone absolutely loved Sherry. There was never a problem Sherry could not handle with grace and dignity.

    I looked forward to seeing and talking with Sherry every week because
    I would leave feeling appreciated and I knew I had a friend for life.
    Sherry loved her daughters, sisters, Mother and her grandson, Madison. Her family was her life.

    I will miss her so much and I’m sure now she is helping others in heaven. I look forward to seeing her again when we are all reunited but until then, thank you Sherry for making this world a better place !

  3. CandleImageSherry and I had many things in common, most notably our many health issues and our loud, Southern voices. We found out about them as we worked together at Kroger for many years. She was my daytime Kroger mom for nearly 5 years. She was also one of the first people to suggest I might have endometriosis, little did we know then that I would go on to study it (and other health problems) in school. Sherry and her girls would go on to help me so many more times while I was getting my degrees. I owe so much to the Patino family and am so sorry for your loss! My heart goes out and my thoughts and prayers are with you all now during this difficult time.

  4. CandleImageTo my family! You all know how much I loved your Mom our friendship our bond! I saw you girls grow and blossom into the ladies you are today! Always love each other and be that strong family unit that your Mom instilled in you! I will miss her but I still got her living inside of each of you! Love you much !
