Cherie was my favorite cashier at Wall-mart. She had the greatest sense of humor, and was always so genuinely friendly. From someone who barely knows her, she will be missed.

Chris, I was sorry to learn of your mothers passing. My mom called and told me about it. I remember her as being so fun and kind. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this very sad time.

I always made sure I went through Cherie's line at the grocery store. She always looked so great. I loved all of her jewelry and her nails were always perfect. She would light up whenever she talked about her grandkids. She told me about a Lagoon day with her granddaughter and her smile went from ear to ear. I wasn't close to her, but I will miss sharing conversations with this sweet lady at the grocery story. I am very sorry for your loss. Take care of each other. God be with you.

I worked with Cherie and DDO. Cherie made work and life fun. I remember one day she got to work and shared her exciting dirve to work. She was lighting her cigarett and at the same time lit her long nail on fire. Like I said she made work exciting and fun. So sorry for your loss but glad I was able to share a bit of Cherie's life.
