This morning, as always, I clicked on Sherry Cermak’s blog “What Did You Eat?” to see if there was a new recipe posted. There was none. From an exchange of emails we’d had earlier in the month, I knew that she was having health issues as well as personal issues, and was hoping to read some good news about her anemia treatment. I happened to click on her site again about 15 minutes ago, only to see that Sher died of a heart attack on Sunday. I felt like somebody hit the back of my head with a bat.
Suffice to say, I’m in complete shock. I cannot stop crying. I don’t want Sher to be gone.
I’m also feeling massively guilty. In our last email, she’d given me her phone number and I was going to call her. I really was. I never did. Now it’s too late.
I see in the food blogosphere requests to make and post about your favorite Sher recipe. I already know what mine will be. I’ll make it tonight or tomorrow, since I won’t be home this weekend. Stay tuned. And keep well, all my dear friends and family.
