Valerie and myself wish to add our sincere sympathy to the family of Cheryl. She lived across the street from us, in Mr. Wards apartment in the back of his house, and we became friends through Carolyn Schofield, Carollee and Jeff. She was a very special person who always thought of others, and cared and had a kind word everkytime we met her. She was full of life and had the humor added to a sparkle in her eye, with each passing moment you met up with her. It was such a delight to be her friend and neighbor and always had time to spend sharing life's dreams and the Savior's Plan of Salvation.May the memories bring you peace and comfort , as it does us all, is our prayer.
