My thoughts and prayers to Sherri's family, friends and co-workers on the first anniversary.

We met Sherri through the L-vad team at Ross Heart Hospital. Sherri was so kind, so patient, and made you feel like you were her only concern. Our deepest sympathy is extended.

Such a beautiful celebration of life for such a remarkable and special young lady. We enjoyed the times we spent together with Ayesha, Craig and Eric just exploring the Short North and watching people. I will miss your unmistakable laugh and bright smile. May God hold your family and Eric in the palm of his hand and ease their pain. Life changes quickly. But one thing is certain: you changed lives, Sherri.

Shock is an understatement!! My heart is heavy! If I was taking care of a LVAD patient, I was happy when Sherri entered the room. Her smile made me smile! She introduced a calm to an overwhelming situation for the patients who were new to the LVAD life. She was doing what she love and that in itself is a blessing. Heaven could not wait, so she will continue utilizing her skills by teaching/educating all who she encounters. Sherri glide when using those Angel Wings.

My heart is heavy at the loss of this beautiful woman. I knew Sherri for over 17 years. She was truly an inspiration and loved by so many. My heart goes out to her family and friends. God has received a true angel and I am glad that Sherri suffers no longer. My sincerest condolences. You will truly be missed...

Until then,
Susan McKinley

Sherri was an amazing person! Her dedication to her profession, no, really it was her calling, the love of her patients and the amazing sense of humor she possessed were all attributes that we saw regularly on display by Sherri. I met her when I first started working in CT Surgery over 11 years ago. What a privilege to have had her as a colleague and friend. My prayers are with all of her family and many, many dear friends.

My heart is heavy but strong. It heavy because of learning of her transition but strong because she was part of the team that prepared me for my transplant. I can only say that her awesomeness was only succeeded by her amazingness! Thank you Sherri. Rest easy.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Sherri's passing. Although I never met her face-to-face, we frequently spoke over the phone to arrange for the needs of her VAD patients. She was always a pleasure to work with, and I considered her a friend.

I hope you will be comforted by the lovely messages of those who admired and will miss Sherri. My thoughts and deepest sympathy are with you during this very difficult time.

We just learned about the sad and unexpected death of Sherri Wissman today. We are very sad to hear of her sudden and unpredictable departure from this world. Sherri was a cheerful and beautiful human being who eased our understanding of the LVAD responsibilities and it was Sherri who comforted us many times during those Days and thereafter, by responding to our calls with kind and comforting advice.

Please know that we are with Sherri's family and friends at the Wexner Medical Center in mourning her departure from this world.
