Sherrard and her sons, Paul Jackson Sherrard Jr., 7, and Charles Richard Sherrard, 4, need no reminder. In fact it probably would be better if young Paul could forget. Mrs. Sherrard and the children witnessed the Dec. 7 Japanese assault as residents in Pearl Harbor and arrived in Morehouse only weeks after a voyage from the Pacific Naval Base.
