I too was stunned and sadened to read about the untimely passing of Jerry and Barbara. We were great friends many years ago, but have since drifted apart. I roomed with both Jerry and his older brother Russell at college. We attended many Husky football games together. I have fond memories of Jerry's and Russell's and Jimmie's parents, Bud and Pearl. Barbara was a gem! Such a loss for all of us....signed Bill Lundberg.

I am so saddened to see the passing of Jerry and Barbara Sherman in such a tragic way. What can I say but they were some of the great people who were a part of my great memories of good old Goldendale. You know you never leave old Goldendale in your mind though you may leave it physically for many years. My family and I lived across the alley from the Shermans and knew them well. Jerry's brother Russ was my brother Bill best friend and his roomate in college and after college for years. I worked for Jerry at Sherman's Chevron. Jerry was active in so many businesses and civic matters. He was one of Goldendale's best and will be sorely missed. I know My family and I will miss them a lot!
