I remember when I was a kid Cheryl would come down and hang out with my sister, Wendy. Those were good times. They seem so far away and feel like they were just yesterday. Rest in peace Cheryl. Thoughts and prayers to Cheryl's family.

Cheryl was a very special girl I was fortunate to have met through a relative and mutual friends when we were young. We shared some very special times together in our youth that I hold dear to my heart today. How such very tragic events happened to such a kind warm loving compassionate human bearing is beyond my comprehension. The world was a better place with her in it. I do know that heaven now has an extraordinary angel and her spirit here lives on. I send my deepest heartfelt condolences to her family. May she rest in eternal peace, God Bless.
