I got to know Cheryl when we volunteered together on Mondays at COS. She was one of the dearest ladies I have known. I never heard her utter an unkind word. I enjoyed hearing her talk sometimes about growing up in a large family. She learned to work hard when she was young, and that habit stayed with her. I know she must have been a wonderful nurse. I am thankfulI met Cheryl and am honored to have had her friendship for a few short years. She was a jewel.
Cheryl was a blessing to Chester and I. She was such a sweet lady always with a smile on her face. She had a calming beautiful spirit and a heart full of love. She was a rare treasure, our sister in Christ. Thank You for Cheryl.
Candy, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
