I have too many memories of our time spent together to select one special time. I will miss Cheryl so much for the friendship we shared, times laughing, getting into a “little” bit of trouble, crying and bearing our souls with each other. I am so glad Cheryl found Aaron because I know he gave her the best, happiest years of her life. My prayers are that Aaron receives the strength and comfort to carry on without her and cherish the memories they made together. Love you ❤️

Cheryl was one of those special people who always impressed me with her grace. I was quite sure she was an angel when I knew her through 12 years of school at Richlands. Although we lost touch over the years, we were instantly friends again when we met at a class reunion a couple of years ago. May the family find peace in knowing that Cheryl was loved as she loved others. We will meet again soon and then there will be no more separation.

Aaron and family, I’m so sorry for your loss. I went to school and graduated with Cheryl... We were very good friends in high school. Aaron, I met you at the high school reunion. Cheryl was always smiling and always kind to everyone she met. I know heaven is a little sweeter tonight because of her presence...you will be in my thoughts and prayers....
