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!"
