VanVleet Family- I am so sad to hear of Sherri’s passing. I worked with Sherri for many years at Health Partners. I will always remember her smile, laugh and bubbly personality. Please know that my thought and prayers are with you all, during this difficult time.
To the family Mrs. Sherri Van Vleet:
I would like to express my condolences to you for the loss of your wife, mother, daughter and sister. The death of a loved one can be most devastating, and even the gentlest of words can do little to soften the intense sadness you feel. But there are some things that you can do so that you are not overwhelmed by sorrow. Always remember…take care of yourself because there are others who need you…accept help from others because you can’t do it all yourself…and most of all, rely on Jehovah, the God of all comfort. He provides comfort through his Word, the Bible, which contains the hope of a resurrection of your dead loved one. Jesus made this promise at John 5:28. This hope can be the greatest comfort while grieving the loss of a loved one. Once again, I express my deepest sympathy.
With my deepest sympathies to you all. Words cannot begin to express the sincere and heartfelt condolences I wish I could say that would ease your grief. May your memories ease your grief and give you comfort.
In this time of sorrow may the promises from the Holy Scripture comfort you and give you strength. Revelation 21:4 Acts 24:15 Psalm 37:11,29. All the promise that God made in the pass all came true, there is no reason that the promises for the future wiull not also come true.Joshua 23:14
