"Sherrie and I were crazy in love, I can tell you that. And it was a very tough time because the band was peaking. And if any woman out there thinks that it would be real exciting to be the girlfriend of somebody in a band like that and that it would be all peaches and cream, the truth is that it's hard to navigate a relationship when you're in the midst of such a ride."

"I think that when you do love someone, you never stop loving them, you just have to deal with it. That's rough. It's just something that you have to face, and it's maybe just not the right time or maybe it's just not right at all. But the hardest part is that, once you do fall in love with someone, you're there... and if you pull out, then you never really were in love with them."
In addition, Sherrie once said,
"I am an esthetician, teach yoga, never married, no children. Love my animals, planting flowers and life. Cherish my friends (including Steve) and my privacy. It was so different for us! It was just Love, nothing else!"
