This morning I received an email from Numberonemusic.com stating that my Tribute song “Times Like These” has climbed to the #1 spot on the Traditional Country Charts after only airing for 3 weeks!  This song was written right after my father died on April 2, 2016.  It was written in order to work through the pain I have felt since his passing.  We all go  through loss in a different way, and at our own pace, this is one way for me to work through the pain and still be able to reach out to my father in a way that not many people can, and that being through my music.  My father was proud of my songwriting efforts and I do feel he is with me every step of the way, his memory, his spirit and his love will carry me through.  I would like to Thank all who have taken the time to listen to my song “Times Like These” and for those who haven’t had the chance I hope you will take the time to listen, let me know what you think.  You can listen here at my website at  sheri-lynn.net or go to

Thank you again to all who have made this possible.

Sending Love,  Sheri Lynn

I am sure one time or another you have wondered about this, who would show up at your memorial service when you die, who really truly cares enough to take the time to speak on your behalf?  How many would sit back in silence because they are too embarrassed to say anything in front of people.  I truly understand because I have been there.  So many memories that you’d love to share but not comfortable speaking in front of people.  But as you grow older, you learn that everyone is there for the same reason, to pay their last respects, to show love and support for the family, but most of all to show Love to the one who was chosen,  to spread their wings and fly. I hope you will listen to my song “Another Place in Time” vocals by Sandi Kight.  May you always carry much Love in your Hearts, and hold on to the Memories, because after all when we go we can only take Memories with us, and that is all that Truly Matters on what we Leave Behind…..Sheri Lynn

I recently wrote a tribute song for my Father for Father’s Day, even though he passed away in April of this year I felt that in order to work through the healing process I would write a song of my last hours with dad. “Times Like These” is a song that comes directly from the heart, it was written in one morning and sent off to Nashville all on the same day.  Aerugo Productions produced my song with Sandi Kight singing the vocals.  William Sherry Jr. my producer knew  I wanted this song to be played on Father’s Day for my Father, and he and Sandi worked hard to get it completed, I was able to post “Times Like These” on Father’s Day, and even though dad is gone to a better place, I know he heard it in Spirit!  Hope you’ll take a listen to my tribute song.

For the past 7 weeks, it has been a very emotional roller coaster ride of emotions.  My Father became very ill and my sister and I took him to the emergency room only to find that Dad had so many medical issues he had to be taken to a hospital that’s several miles away.  Little did I know for 5 1/2 weeks I would be making 100 mile trips to and from the hospital for daily visits to be with dad.   From many test, and surgeries, to infections, dad still managed a smile and was kind to all who he came in contact with.  My father met a very nice man, named “Hank”  in ICU, who was there to be with his brother who’s ICU room was close by.   Hank would spend time with dad in the evenings and they became pretty good friends.  Hank was always so upbeat and positive which is what dad needed, he promised to bring dad a picture of a sunset that he had taken in Africa from his back porch, and he teased dad how someday they would sit on his back porch and watch the sunset.  Hank kept his promise and brought in a beautiful  enlargement of the sunset and even purchased a frame for it to be placed in dad’s hospital room.  Dad was so proud of this picture and Hank’s kindness.  Even though Hank’s brother was moved to another hospital, Hank still stopped in to see Dad and checked on him.  On Easter morning I got a call from the doctors telling me that dad was out of options, that the feeding tubes they placed would never work, and there was nothing more that they could do for dad, so dad was placed on “Comfort Care.”  Dad just had too many things against him, and would never get better.  This broke my heart and after 35 days in the hospital,  dad was now to be placed into a Hospice Care Home even farther away.  On dad’s last day at the hospital, Hank stopped in to see dad and he talked to us, and before he left he grabbed dad and kissed the top of dad’s head and said he’d see him soon.  Little did Hank know, that was his final good bye.  Dad was taken to the Hospice Care Home that late afternoon, and he was only able to communicate fairly well for 1 day then he slowly drifted away, and by day 4 he passed away, on April 2, 2016 at 11:45 pm.

I knew I had to get a message to Hank, so I happened to remember I had his business card, so sent out a message to him telling him of dad’s passing.  I thanked Hank for being so kind with dad, and being such a great friend to the family.  I never heard back so wasn’t sure if he got my message or not.  I  could only hope that I would hear from Hank…..

On April 9, 2016  at 10 am we had Dad’s memorial service, many family and friends came to the service.  And  we placed the beautiful sunset picture that Hank gave to dad at the service next to dad’s closed casket.  During the service I felt bad because I didn’t try calling Hank to tell him about dad’s funeral service, but I thought that maybe Hank was back in Africa.  At the end of the funeral service and just a few of us family were left my sister said, “Sheri, Hank’s here.”   I looked up and there he stood at the end of the chapel, somehow he found out and he came to say his final good-byes.  So this is to show you all that Angels really do exist…  Hank is true to his word, and he promised Dad that he’d be there for us kids, and he  was, and I feel he will continue to be…
