    I knew Cheyrn from the time I met Carla in the first grade at Hedges School. When you met one of the Majors Girls it was like being a part of that family…as was often the way back in the 50s.
    At a party for Carla, at the Majors’ house, Cheyrn showed me how to make FRAPE.
    So long ago, but there are some things that you never forget.

  32. My deepest sympathy and love to Cheryn’s family. She was one of a kind. We took many trips and attended lots of events together. She will be missed tremendously.
    Love you all!❤
