I was totally shocked when I read this post, Glenna. Sher's blog is one of my favorites and I'm so stunned at the suddenness of it. I'm so sorry you've lost such a good friend


I'm sorry for everyone's loss. I've only known Sher via her blog ... but I'll miss her.


So sad... I am ever so heartbroken.

I'll miss her!


What a loving tribute to your friend...it's clear how much she meant to you and how much she will be missed. And all to scary! I'm turning 59 in a few days and I think this is the stage of your life when you begin to feel all too mortal and to see someone so vibrant looking taken down at 60 just strikes too close to home. Thank you for this post and I hope you will be comforted by those surrounding you. It's hard to lose a friend.


I'm so sorry for your loss, Glenna. Sherry was a wonderful gal and I really enjoyed getting to know her through her blog.

She will be missed tremendously.

You're in my thoughts and prayers!




What a moving and fine tribute to a fantastic woman. Sher will be greatly missed in all the circles she traveled.

Your and Sher's fellow Bread Baking Babe,



I am beyond words. I could not believe the tragic news of Sher's passing. I've known Sher for quite some time as we both started our blogs around the same time. I always knew her to be a generous and sweet person with a love of food and animals. Reading your post has been such a comforting thing. I'm so happy to hear that Sher meant so much to so many (how could she not?!). Please pass along my condolences to her family and let them know that she was a one-of-a-kind sweetheart whome I will always remember.


Lovely tribute. I have read her blog often and know that she will be missed.


What sad and shocking news :( I've read What Did You Eat? every so often and Sher sounded like a great person and I enjoyed reading about her cooking and pets. I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend, she will be very missed. *hugs*


This is really very sad news. This is a great tribute. Hugs!


I did not know Sher other than through her blog, but I do know that her death has left a huge void in many peoples hearts. I am truly, truly sorry for your loss of such a wonderful friend. You, your family, her family, and all those close to her will be in my prayers.


You wrote a lovely tribute to your friend. She sounds like an amazing person. You and her family are in my thoughts.


Oh my dear...beautifully written and your love for her shines through.

The real world and foodblog world is a little less kind.

Hugs, warmth and support,



Thank you Glenna for letting us know Sher better, I already knew she was a generous and loving person with a great sense of humour but reading your wonderful post makes her remain even more alive to me! Big hug! I will be thinking of both of you.


I did not know Sherry but I was just on her blog for the first time earlier this week.

What a wonderful tribute to a forever friend.


Glenna, this is a wonderful tribute to Sher. I fell in love with her personality the minute I read her book and was proud to be a DB with her.
She will always be remembered with love by this commnubity.


This is a wonderful tribute Glenna. My deepest condolances to her family and you. It was wonderful to get tot know her through the DB and I feel a little better for having been part of her life in some very small way.


What a wonderful tribute Glenna. It was such a shock to hear... It seems so impossible...
My sympathy for the huge gap she has left.
And big hugs from me, too.

Glenna, I am so sorry for your loss.


What a wonderful tribute Glenna, honest and heartfelt, what a tribute should be. Sher will be missed very much, it will be difficult not seeing her site update with a new post, especially on reveal day.
Hugs and kisses to you, and her family, with love and sympathy.


Awww Glenna, I'm so sorry!! Obviously I never knew her, but I'd always see her posting first after your latest blog. I always thought she must have been a great friend of yours. We'll bring Lucy by - you can smell her - smelling babies always makes me feel better. Unless she pooped first. Ok, I'll make sure she's had her diaper changed beforehand. I'm so sorry for the passing of your fellow foodie blogger, and dear friend.


How sad. I always loved to hear about the animals and Sher's life. I'm so sorry.


A wonderful tribute to a great woman.
I am still in shock and can't believe she is gone forever. He blog was on my daily blogroll and there was seldom a day when I did not pop in to look 'bout any news from her.
we had a lose email friendship over the years since I started my foodblog but every single one of her mails was precious to me as the y were always so full of life and she always managed to put the smile back on my face!

You know what?
She is there sitting above us playing and cuddling with Sundance and Upsie smiling at us. Close your eye. Can you feel her smile? It's there!


Glenna, I so happy to better know your friendship with Sher. I enjoyed her so much, felt like we were starting such a fun time. I loved talking to her about bread, she had tremendous and infectious enthusiasm for it. I'm going to miss her with every loaf I bake.


Glenna, what a lovely tribute to Sher. Thanks for sharing your memories of her with the rest of us. I know she touched many people's lives in a postive way. I first got to know Sher through Weekend Herb Blogging, and for several years I've considered her one of my best "blog friends." I had tried for two years to get to meet her in person when I was in California, but it never did work out, something I will always regret.


Wonderful tribute to Sher.


Glenna, this is such a wonderful post about your friendship with Sher. I have been enjoying her blog for a few years now and am so saddened by her passing. I feel that Upsie and Sundance are all snuggled up with Sher now. My heartfelt condolences to you and her family.


I just heard about this. I am so in shock.
I'm so very sorry thay you lost such a close friend. How lucky were you to have gotten to spend time with her in real life.
Just another case of showing us to appreciate each day we have with the people we love and care about.


This is such sad news. I lurked on Sherry's blog and cooked a few of her recipes. And you have posted such a beautiful and touching tribute to her. My sincerest condolences.


I am so very sorry for your loss Glenna. Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful memories of Sher with us. My condolences to Sher's family and yours. She will be missed.


Dear Glenna,
I wish you all the strenght a friend needs when her best friend passes away .Thank you for letting me know Sher a little more by your lovely words and a picture of her. There will be an empty seat in the backrow of our BreadBakingBabes -classroom forever.


Unfortunately, I didn't get to know Sher other than during a brief period in the group of Bread Baking Babes. However, I treasure the bread recipe that she brought to us from "The Bread Baker's Apprentice" and that I now use more or less as a reference. I was also perplexed by she having a heart attack, since I had thought Sher to be quite young -- don't know why, but perhaps from her young spirit.

Anyway, many thanks to you, Glenna, for letting me and others know a little more about Sher. This was indeed a very beautiful story and yet totally without sentimentality. Which, after having heard your story, I would presume Sher wouldn't care much about!

So sorry for your loss, Glenna, and many condolences to her family.

What a lovely tribute to Sher. Her kindness and humor will be missed.


I'm so sorry to hear of Sher's passing. This is a beautiful tribute to a dear friend.


You've a written such a beautiful and meaningful tribute- my heartfelt condolences. I only knew Sher from her blog. She will be missed.


You've written a beautiful memorial of her, and it's so easy to see how you two became close friends. Sher will be missed.


Im so sorry you lost a good friend. I know exacltly how you feel. I was somewhat familair with Shers blog through the Daring Bakers. It is so hard to come to terms with something so sudden. Just cherish your memories and good times and know she will always be with you.


Glenna- this was a beautiful post to give a memorial a beautiful friend. I had Sher on my blog reader and fully enjoyed her writing. She will be greatly missed.


I was shocked and still saddened when I got word of Sher's death.

My deepest condolences to those in her life and after reading more about Sher here, I know you now have an irreplaceable void in your lives.

Total and utter shock. Glenn, a beautiful tribute to a wonderful friend.

Dear Glenna, I knew you and Sher were friends but didn't know, until now, that your friendship long preceded and surpassed your blogs. Stay safe for now in your cave, but come out again soon, okay? Maybe you can feed the squirrels, in her memory. xo

Glenna, I'm so sorry for your loss. Sher will be missed by all. Sending a big hug to you and to Sher's family.


so beautiful, you speak wonderfully for your friendship and for Sher... one can only hope for the same in our lives (I know I do nto have a blog buddy like you all, its a precious rare thing!)

Thank you for sharing (now I have to stop crying at work)



Oh Glenna- my heart breaks for such a senseless loss. I only have known Sher through the DBs and thought her delightful. I know she will be missed and I send my love and hope for the blessing of comfort to you, to her other friends and most of all to her family. Bake on Sher! xxooxxooxx


Amazing tribute, Glenna -- this had to have been so hard to sit down and write, not because you don't have millions of wonderful things to say about Sher, but because I can only imagine how shocked and grieving you are. Thank you for sharing the memories, and my condolences for a tragic, tragic loss.


Glenna, this is, as everyone else has said, a wonderful tribute to Sher and your friendship with her. I'm saying a little prayer for you and her family and all the many, many people who must be deeply feeling this loss right now.


Glenna this is a lovely tribute to Sher. I did not know her but I can see was very special. My condolences to you and her family.


Thank you for sharing your memories of Sher with us, Glenna. Thinking of you at this sad time.

I'd not heard of your friend Sher until I read the notice on BlogHer's main page. (This is how I found you, too.)

I'm so sorry for your loss.
