Mr. Sherman was a good man and friend. I used to go by his place quite frequently to buy bee supplies or just for a visit. He gave me a lot of advice on bee keeping. We also talked about our lord and savior, Jesus Christ. He loved people, especially Gods people. I will miss him, but I know where he is, Go rest high on the mountain Mr SHERMAN, your work on earth is done. A friend, Bruce DeBruhl

When we were looking for a preacher to marry us I told my husband Sherman was the best I knew.He and Lois met with us before he would agree to talk to us about what marriage means and the troubles everyone has. I will never forget what he said. Sherman and Lois were special people and will be missed.
