My hero My hero, Sherry Bowman, unfortunately passed away this past summer.My grandma was born January 5th, in Mansfield,Ohio. She had white curly short hair and was kind of tall. She was always outgoing and never gave up on anything. She went beyond the limits and impressed everyone and always put a smile on everyone’s face. My grandma was a hero because she was always there for someone in need. Everyone loved her because she did whatever she could to make sure things were right. Even though times were hard she still managed to pull through it. Because of the things she did for people, she got along with everyone well. Sherry Bowman,my grandmother,is my hero. She was an amazing person and was always there for me when I needed something or someone to talk too. She took care of me and made sure I had everything I needed. While my grandma was alive she was my best friend. I look up to my grandma for all the good things she did. I want to be as great and as helpful as my grandma. My grandma is my motivation and I wanna make her proud this school year.
