May 1, 2021 Dear Taylor and Torri Thomas and the Family of Sherice Parker Thomas, Words seem so inadequate at times like these, but we must try to express our heartfelt sympathy in the passing of your mom and our dear sister, Sherice Daniele Parker Thomas. May you find peace and comfort in knowing that the Gethsemane Church Family and Friends grieve with you during this difficult time, but we also celebrate her life with you as well. We serve a God who sits high and looks low and cares for us all in every situation. Allow God's powerful, comforting, and healing Word to offer solace and strength to you in your sorrow. Trust the Lord with all your heart, lean on Him, cry out to Him, and He will sustain you. Meditate on Lamentations 3:22-23 (NIV), which reads … “Because of the LORD’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Stand on His promises and faithfulness. Please know we are here for you and praying for you. Yours in Christ, Rev. Dr. Kirk T. Houston, Sr. Rev. Dr. Kirk T. Houston, Sr., and the Gethsemane Family

Sherice, I remember dance recitals and growing up in Lynchburg. Thank you for taking me under your wing when I was a freshman at HHS. With sympathy and Love, to Mrs. Myra and family, Lanise

We will miss you Sherice...Rest peacefully .

I was saddened to hear of Sherice’s death and family you have my deepest sympathy. Fond memories of Sherice came to mind of when she was in my fifth grade class. She was such a good student and very well- behaved. If I had to predict when she was ten years old what she would be, I would have predicted that she would be in a profession where she took care of others and so she did. Sherice’s mom was a great supporter of her and a great parent to work with. Family, May God bless, keep, and guide you during this difficult time.
