Cheri Gaye Prather, 50, passed away Wednesday, April 25, 2018, at her home. She was born June 14, 1967 to Lewis and Pat Forbess. She finally found true love and married the love of her life, Jacky Prather on July 17, 2017. When she spoke her words were soft but she was a fighter and she went above and beyond for her family. She loved her family and extended family. She was always there for her children. She loved racing, Dale Jr. and the Dallas Cow Boys. One thing that will be truly missed will be her little notes she would leave around for her loved ones to read.
