My daughter Sheri (not spelled Sherrie, thank you) was the little 14 year old girl with Kathy when Kathy (about the same age) darted out in front of that car in 1971 and was sadly knocked out of her shoes and put into a coma. My daughter was so upset she did not sleep for days. Sheri & her mom regularly visited Kathy in hospital and when Kathy came home to keep on mending, Sheri was constantly over at Kathy's helping out and working with her to help her heal. When I saw that movie I was furious that they (incorrectly) portrayed Sheri as a neighbor girl who forsook (contrary to the truth) Kathy to, I am sure, make viewers feel more sorry for Kathy. Sheri's mom almost sued the film maker, but was talked out of it by a practical thinking attorney. I know about artistic license, but they could have used another name besides the my daughter's name. I will never forgive them for that! Dad Stan
