This is simply beautiful Glenna. I have been so stunned and shocked by her death. Sher was the first blogger to post a link to mine when I started blogging in 2006 and never failed to leave comments on a regular basis. I loved her enthusiasm, her love for animals and her spirit. I am sad that I never met her, but after reading your post, now feel that I know her well.

Godspeed to Sher, may she rest in eternal peace.

I am so sorry to hear of Sherry's passing. I am happy though that you two found each other and were great friends. I didn't know Sherry or her blog until DB - but your post puts tears in my eyes, as we all lose at some point in our life. It will be the memories that live on.


I know first hand from Sher just how much she loved you, Glenna, and I am so very sorry for the loss of this wonderful person in your life. You couldn't have written a better post in tribute to her. Hugs to you,

Miss Peach

Dear Glenna! I am so sorry you have lost your dear friend so unexpectantly. I do not know you but please know that I care and my tiny kitty heart breaks for your sadness.
Many soft purrrs from Miss Peach


So sad to hear the news, Glenna. Thanks for a wonderful tribute and my condolences to you and Sher's family.


Thank you all so very much for your kindness. I will make sure Bob is aware of your comments, Glenna


What a great loss! My deepest condolances to her family and you. What a shock, I can't believe

Dear Glenna, Bob and Sher's extended family,
I am so so sad for your loss of Sher, for her family and her huge extended family in the blogoshpere. I found her near the beginning of her blog and we wrote back and forth amny times. She was always so inspiring and loving. She will be remembered in so many ways and her inspiration will live on in all of us who's lives she touched. Very recently, she comforted me as I passed through a difficult time. It is obvious that she gave herself and her talents to so many....to all her precious animal friends, as well. We were still grieving Upsie and Pumpkin!
Thank you, thank you, Glenna, for keeping us posted and sharing your beautiful story of friendship. I am sure Sher loved you very much.


What a moving tribute to Sher. Thank you for giving a glimpse into your special friendship.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and to her family. It's amazing how the internet has connected us with wonderful women that we would never otherwise have met.


This is a wonderful tribute and I'm so happy to see a picture of Sher and learn a little more about someone whose blog I've been reading for more than two years.

I always enjoyed Sher's wit and humor, and thought she was such a good writer. I also admired her wildlife rehabilitation work. She was a wonderful, warm person, and if her loss leaves such a big hole for me, I can't begin to think of what a huge loss it is for you, and for her family.


I did not know Sherry or her blog but you wrote such a moving tribute to her that I feel that I did. I'm so very sorry for your loss.


i am sorry that sherry is no more. thank you, glenna, for this glimpse of your beautiful friend. hugs to you.


Glenna, Thank you for your beautiful writing about Sher and what she meant to you. I'm sorry for such I huge loss.
We will all miss Sher.


Oh Glenna, my heart goes out to you and Sher's family. I can only imagine the pain you must be feeling. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.


Glenna, I am wiping tiny tears as I read this and the comments. I lurked on both of your blogs - and am now wishing I'd commented on Sher's more often.


I am so sorry. What a loss. I can totally related to going to the blog to tell your best friend about your best friend that passed away. My thoughts are with you and you know what I think this news just kicked my ass. She looks like me and well I have that weight problem too.



I am so very sorry for your loss. I knew Sher through our time together writing for Well Fed, and she had such a fun, sweet spirit - she was such a pleasure to work with. I loved her emails about her work the squirrels she would take in, and of course, the weekly pictures of Upsie on her blog.

The news of her passing so suddenly has been quite devastating to me - I always looked forward to her posts.

My condolences to you and her family. She was a wonderful woman and I will miss her very much.


I am so sorry for the loss of your friend.I will miss her very much


i am so sorry for everyone's loss. sher was a wonderful friend.

So very sorry for the loss of your dear friend, but, it sounds like you both were such blessings to each other. I really understand how blogging friends become so important to you. I have some of them myself and cherish their presence in my life. I am thankful you both got to know each other. It sounded like a blast!!!


This is a lovely tribute, and I'm glad I followed the DB link to it. Thank you for sharing your memories of Sher--she truly was a wonderful person!


I am so sorry to hear this. I wish for you some peace and comfort in the knowledge of all that you shared over the years and the texts. Making it even more important for me to remember to live every day like it's the only one you get.


Glenna, thanks for sharing this wonderful tribute to Sher with us.



I just found your site through blogher and I wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. Friendships like the one you had with Sher are so very rare. Your post is a wonderful tribute...well done.


Beautiful tribute, this is devastating news.

I used to read her blog very often, made plenty of her recipes.

very sorry

Wandering Chopsticks

That was a lovely tribute. I only "met" Sher once when I hosted WHB last month and she sent me such a lovely note. I only wish I had discovered her blog sooner.


I'm very sad for you, Glenna. I remember the week you spent with Sher. I was jealous of your deep and immediate bond, and still I celebrate the fact that you and she had such a loving friendship.


Glenna, this is fantastic. Thank you so much for letting us who knew her a little bit feel like we know her so much more now. She was such a supporter of my little blog and in turn, I made such wonderful food from hers. I wish I'd let her know just how many of her recipes I put to use. My heart is sore. She will be dearly missed. I'm so very sorry for your loss, Glenna.


Glenna -

A beautiful, beautiful tribute to a bright and shining soul.

I was able to talk to Sher once on the phone about a month and a half ago or so - I felt as though I was talking to a celebrity. She had a lovely laugh. I am so very, very glad I was able to speak with her.

She and I exchanged emails now and then over the past year; she was always thoughtful, funny, and wise.

I cannot believe she is gone. My heart aches - for you and for all of us. What a terrible loss. Like others above, though, I think she's up there now with Upsie and Sundance, smiling down at us all in our gardens and kitchens.

Thank you for this memorial to her.


I had not heard of your friend Sher until today, but wanted to say I am so sorry for your loss. I am from the Joplin area and think it is so cool how you two met and became friends. My heart goes out to you and all of Sher's friends and family.

Glenna I am so sorry.

She always made me laugh with her cat blogging and inspired with her food.

Glenna, what a wonderful tribute to a wonderful friend. Take care, Sher is in our hearts and minds.

Butta Buns

I've been away for the past two weeks and can't believe what I'm reading. Thank you for letting us know and also posting a picture of her. She had such a wonderful smile and we haven't seen it until now. Hugs to you!


Thank you, everyone. I so wish Sher could see this all this love. She's so modest she would have been flabbergasted but secretly she would have been pleased. I'm sure. Thank you so much.

Mrs Ergul

This is a lovely tribute. I have recently lost a friend 2 months ago, I regretted not spending time keeping in contact. At least you 2 have been really close throughout the years. Take care.


i'm so sorry to hear of Sher's passing. you did a great job describing the relationship you had. it reminds me when i lost my sister---the void is still there. after her passing i started a memorial garden which has turned into a very healing experience. if you would like to see the beauty that she sends me in the form of flowers take a look at http://www.mysisterdalesgarden.com i'm sure dale would want to share the photos with you and sher.

all the best,


Dear Glenna,

It seemed like yesterday that you two visited and went to Napa.

I'm so sorry for your loss. What a special friendship you had. Thanks for sharing your memories.



Beautiful tribute.


Susan from Food Blogga

Glenna, I am heart-warmed to know that you and Sher shared a close bond. Thank you for the lovely tribute.

Thank you for this moving witness to a wonderful person and a beautiful friendship. I will miss Sher. May her memory be a blessing.

I am so sorry to hear this tragic news and I am so sorry Glenna for the loss of your beloved friend.


I just returned fromm holidays and found this very bad news on my PC about Sher. Thanks for telling about her, for unfortunately I hardly had the chance to get to know her better in the short time of the Babes. Thinking about you too!


Glenna, I just found out about Sher today and I'm reeling from the news. She was such a wonderful person. Your tribute brought tears to my eyes.

And for one of the few times in my life I am at a loss for words on how to convey how I feel. Sadness, sympathy for friends and family, and asking myslef if i need to re-evaluate my life. I had a mild heart attack 5 years ago. This could have easily been me. Maybe this is my wake up call to get myself back on track, lose some weight and take my health more seriously. If so, then I hope that Sher will look down and watch over me.




I know I am late to the table here, but I cannot tell you how sorry I am for your loss, Glenna.


What a beautiful tribute to Sher, you were both so lucky to have had each other for those 8 years.



Bellini Valli

Sadly this is the first time I had ever had the opportunity to visit Sher's blog and it saddens me that the blogging world has lost a creative and kindred spirit. This post is a loving tribute to her as well as all the other support and kindness from her friends. She will clearly be missed.
