My mom taught me to treat everyone with respect & dignity. My mom taught me to love to laugh to cry. My mom taught me that life is what we make it & that our happiness comes from within & if we can find that happiness no one can take it away. My mom taught me not to judge others. My mom taught me loyalty. My mom taught me humility. My mom taught me that family & true friends are forever. My mom taught spirtual, mental, & physical strength. Sherry Jo Nipper was one of the strongest people to have ever walked this earth. She was brave, kind, & gorgeous inside & out. She was smart, funny, witty, charming & warm. She was an absolutely wonderful & amazing human being. She was my mother & my friend. I will forever carry her strength & spirit with me in my heart & soul. Thank you to all that loved & cared for mom over the years.

My deepest condolences to family. It had been years since I last saw Sherry and has been just as long since, but no matter the time she always greeted me with a smile, hug and what have you been doing with yourself. She will be missed.

What can you say about such a beautiful person? I left Mena and Sherry in 1974. “Seasons in the Sun” by Terry Jacks was on the charts. We loved it and laughed about it. It is a song about saying goodbye but also about celebrating life. I remember Sherry saying, “One day, one of us will have to sing that to the other”. Have not thought of that song in years. A couple of nights after Sherry left us, it came to me in a dream. Funny how that happens. So I borrow from the song. “ Goodbye to you my trusted friend, we’ve known each other since we were nine or ten, together we’ve climbed hills and trees. Learned of love and ABC’s, skinned our hearts and skinned our knees. We had joy we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.” These 53 yrs we have had together hold some of my favorite memories . It could be days, weeks or months between conversations , or years between visits; but, it was always like coming home. Our talks held a lot of laughter but always ended with Sherry saying “I love you” or I love you, my friend”. She was forever an “old soul” with a deep sense of life and love. She brought peace and joy to everyone lucky enough to share her life. I have traveled the world and have met so many people; yet never a kinder person nor better friend. What a beautiful mom, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend she was. From now to the end, I will miss you my friend …but know in my heart, I will see you again. All our lives we had fun, we had seasons in the sun. Goodbye to you my trusted friend.

Sherry has been my neighbor all my adult life. We helped each other and raised our boys together. I will remember her smile, her quick wit, her loyalty to those she loved, and her unending love for her family. I can’t wrap my mind around her not being present in Nipper Forest. I have a vision of her though that includes her singing as she runs through a field of flowers in another beautiful forest. I loved her and she loved me..enough said. I’m praying for the boys and all her family. With my love, Cathy Followell
