November 2nd 2016, we lost an angel.
Sherri Graves Smith (1971-2016)
Yes, Sherri Graves Smith was an author, attorney, philanthropist, and for nine years, a cancer survivor. But she was also an angel walking among us on earth, as lovely internally as she was on the outside, with a sweet voice and lilting laughter to match. So if you felt a soft flutter of wings against your cheek or heard the beat of distant wings, perhaps it was our angel making her way home. Sherri will be missed by so many but she left much by which we can remember her.
Sherri’s friends and family, including Team Sherri at BeMulberry, will work together to ensure Sherri’s legacy of placing uplifting, inspiring picture books into the hands of all children.
