    Our condolences To Wayne and family. My cousin Cheryl’s SMILE was power and will be deeply missed by us because she was so loved by many. Cheryl knew no strangers because her heart of kindness gave to so many here and abroad. Her smile was so inviting as it lit up rooms as she would enter. That same smile from when we were young and in school together no one could overlook it, you were drawn to it. Cheryl was an Angel here and now she has her wings to continue watching over loved ones. GOD bless you and keep you Cheryl Always.

  31. I am so deeply sorry for your loss of your wife and mother. I didn’t know Cheryl for long but what really resonated with me was her caring nature for not just her family but those that came into her life. The one thing I know is her family meant everything to her. Together you will grieve but you will also find the strength and determination to carry on her legacy. Cheryl will be with you for every family moment or caring deed you do for others. God bless you.

    Cindy and I send our deepest condolences for your loss. Cheryl will be missed by all of us. She was always warm and inviting and full of kind words. I offer you an Irish poem that I came across which seems fitting: “Those we love don’t go away, They walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near, Still loved, still missed and very dear.” Cindy and I pray that your precious memories will carry you through. May God give each of you comfort during this time in your lives.
