  Sherrill will always carry a special place in my heart. From high school, our college days as roommates at Winston-Salem State University, being members at the same church and sharing together on several projects, these fond memories will stay with me forever. She was one special woman and a true soldier for God. My prayers of comfort are with you Kenneth Sr. Kenneth Jr., Brandon, Hazael, Mr. & Mrs. McRae, Ren and Haze. I love you all.

You will truly be missed. I love you and your family. Thank you for treating me like I was your daughter. Thank you for your wisdom, guidance, mother-hen love, and showing me that God loves all in spite of flaws. Thank you for your correction, and thank you for being "real" with me. Thank you for helping me in the worst times of life. Thank for pushing me to be a better daughter to my mother. I just want to say "thank you"! You will never be forgotten. You were always strong, courageous, smart, and spirit-willing. I pray that everything that God lead you to contribute in my life will always be cherished. It is hard to process all of this and put into the right words, but i hope it is all understood and reflected as genuine. With love- Nikki
