Alan Sherwood

So sorry to hear about your Mom's passing (Pam and Sharon). I have so many fond memories of coming down to the house on Sunset with my Dad, Mom and Jill. I had many coffee's with Aunt Lois and Grandma Sherwood and listened to their many stories. She was always very kind to us when we were kids and after we were grown. She was a big part of the memories of our families and of those who are now gone. May you find comfort in knowing that you are in our hearts and we are thinking of you.
