“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
If ever there was a life that spoke most ardently to love and friendship, it was Nick’s. His life and presence were gifts to us all. Every detail of his life was a recognition of beauty, sacrifice, and love. Every moment he lived reminded us of why one’s passion is a celebration.
The Sheriff, Garnett, Goodridge, and Berrian families announce with tremendous sorrow and a grateful heart of God’s will the homegoing of our dearest husband, father, son, brother, grandfather, cousin, and uncle, Mr. Nicholas Jim Sheriff Sr.
Nick surrendered to the will of his maker and redeemer and took his wings on Monday, October 3, 2022, at 4:24, p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Nick Transitioned in love with his beloved wife, Mei by his bedside.
He was born in Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa to the union of Dr. John G. Sheriff and Rachal Garnett.
Nick leaves to cherish his memories his lovely wife, Jamesetta Amelia Berrian Sheriff (he affectionately called Mei)
His loving mother, Rachel Garnett
