I am Sherry Silva (Shimon) Im the daughter of her long time partner John Shimon.I just wanna say that about the last six months of her life was bittersweet to me. For 9 years we didnt talk because of a fall out that we had. I went through some changes in my life, in those 9 years I got closer to GOD, so when she called me one day letting me know that she needed my help. I didnt hesitate, I helped being her caregiver starting that day. In those last months, we cried, laughed and went through so many memories from the past and thoughts of ones for the future that we would never live. Our relationship became very close, just like a mother and daughter should be. Watching someone that you love go through the transition that you go though before you die was bittersweet, It also taught me to be more compassion towards the whole situation of being her caregiver and being there when she needed me.. So mom you will be missed and dad I fullfilled my promise. Luv you both!!
