Sheryl Jaynes-Andrews--A Flower of the Forest

Sheryl Jaynes-Andrews (March 15, 1942 - April 12, 2012)

Sheryl Jaynes-Andrews was my friend and high school classmate. She is now, according to Scottish lore, a flower of the forest. Sheryl loved her Lord, her large family, her many friends, her dog Mia, her work, everything in nature, and Martha's Vineyard. While cancer may have taken her life, it could not conquer her indomitable spirit! I shall borrow some words from Vince Gill's powerful song, "Go Rest High," to bid a fond farewell to this amazing person.

"Go rest high on that mountain
[Child] your work on Earth is done
Go to heaven a-shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son."
