July 23, 2008



I can't even express how sorry I am about her sudden passing - her blog has been a joy to read/follow, and she will sorely be missed.


It's such a sad sad loss for the food blogging community.


I didn't know and I am so so very sorry to lose Sher. She was the first blog I ever discovered and I have enjoyed reading her immensely. My thoughts are with her family and friends. I will miss her.

I'm so sorry for your loss. My deepest sympathies with you and your family.

I only "met" Sherry once. When I was hosting WHB last month and she sent me a very nice comment. I wish I had discovered her sooner.

Dear Bob,
My family and I loved Sherry so much and we spent countless hours reading and thoroughly enjoying her life with food and dear cats. I hope there is comfort in knowing about all the joy she brought to others.
Thank you for the beautiful posting.
Hugs to you and Laura.



I'm terribly sorry for your loss. I subscribe to Sherry's blog and am a faithful reader, though I have never met her. My condolences go out to you.


Bob , my deepest sympathies to you and your surrounding family. Take all the comfort you can from them and hopefully they will help you to remember how Sher fondly touched each of your lives.


Bob, I'm so sorry for your loss. I wish I would have known about her blog before this.

I was shocked to open this blog today to learn about Sheery's death. I did not know Sherry except through this blog and I never ever left a comment here until now. I loved reading all her recipes, suggestions, and cat news and only wish I had said as much before now. My sincere condolences to you, Bob, on your loss.

Hello Bob, I was so saddened to hear the news of Sherry's death. I've been following her blog for years now, always finding inspiration in her posts and recipes. I'm in Carmichael, not too far away from Davis and had really hoped to meet Sher. I'm so sorry for your and your family's loss.

I can't believe this and am sitting here is shock! I wasn't a part of either group she belonged to but started reading her when we both joined a 'centerpiece' group. I have been reading her ever since and noticed how often she came to visit me as well. My word I don't even know what to say. I am so so sorry for your loss.


I'm so sorry to hear this. Sher had a delightful presence in both the food blogging and cat blogging communities. I hope that she and Upsie are having a good cuddle now.



I am sorry for your loss. I lurked on Sherry's site for over a year. I loved her Cat blogging and ended up getting a kitten of my own - Sherry inspired me! We signed in often to see what Laura was up to...and to see her cute picture. We also found much joy out of the squirrels.

Sherry will sure be missed. Please know that I have been touched by her through this blog...in Nashville, TN. Long Live What Did you Eat.


What a shock it was to read your post today. I am very sorry, my condolences to you and your family and friends. I have been reading Sher's blog for quite some time and many of her recipes have become family favourites....her Minnesota Wild Rice soup is definitely the first one that comes to mind. It was kind of you to inform all of Sher's readers of the tragedy. Please keep well.


That's terrible news. She was a great food writer and animal lover.


Thanks for giving us this final glimpse of Sher. I cannot even imagine how painful it was to use the blog she loved so much as a vehicle to convey this kind of news. I think we will never have any idea of just how many lives she touched.

My hope is that you will keep the blog online, as a memorial to her creative approach for cooking and her wonderful zest for life. I can't imagine how sad it would feel to someday click on a link to her blog and have nothing there.

My best to all of Sher's family at this difficult time.


Thank you for finding the strength to announce this here, Bob.
I am so sorry.


Thanks, Bob. Our love, thoughts, and prayers are with you and her family.


My sympathies to you, Bob. I really enjoyed Sherry's blog.


I'm crying so hard, I can barely type this. I can't believe it. I still have the last email I got from her in June sitting in my inbox. I've been following her blog and chatting with her since its inception. I was going to try and visit her this year even. Oh my god. Bob, I'm so terribly sorry for your loss.







Bob, thanks for posting this tribute to Sher. My thoughts are with you and your family.


Bob, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. She will be so missed. Sher was a warm thoughtful presence, I thought of her as a "neighbor" and a friend.


I'm so sorry for your grief. I made her shrimp and crab gumbo for a Christmas dinner party last year and started a tradition... I will think of you and her again this year.


I am so sorry to hear of Sherry's passing. I hope it gives you comfort to know that her memory will live on in all of our kitchens for years to come. I won't be able to make her Corn Chowder (my absolute favorite) without thinking of her.


Oh I am so sorry for your loss! I have been reading her blog for about 2 years - I feel like I knew her. God Bless you and give you strength.

I'm so sorry for your loss. While I didn't know Sherry and had never read her blog, my heart goes out to her family. Blogging has been an amazing part of my life and I only wish I had time to discover all the other wonderful bloggers out there. I'm sorry I never got to *know* Sherry through her blog, but it's obvious she touched many lives.


GASP. Oh Bob, I am so so sorry for your loss. Sherrys spirit and her love for animals just shined through this blog. My deepest condolences...



I'm so sorry about your loss.
Sherry was somebody who inspired me and enlightened my weeks through her wonderful blog. I'm already missing her!

In thoughts with you,



I am so sorry I never got to "know" her. But her blogging is still a wonderful gift to us all.

All the best to you, Bob.
