This beautiful lady was such an amazing friend, second mom, like a sister and like a grandmother to my children! She had such strength and perseverance. She never met someone she couldn’t love or find the good in. She would of given her last dime to help someone who needed it worse. My love for this beautiful lady is beyond measure. I will miss all or talks and laughs! All the special times we just spent time together. I think I will mostly miss your amazing hugs...and hearing you say “ Shut up Cheryl “.
