When we were children, as siblings often do, Cheryl and I fought like cats and dogs.
As we grew up, we disagreed about almost everything, even music.
For me, it was the refined sound of the Beatles.
Cheryl preferred the edgier sounding Rolling Stones.
But, one day, she brought home a record by The Hollies.
I would hear, ebbing through the wall separating our bedrooms, "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother".
She played it over, and over, and over, but I didn't really mind.

Cheryl would have a difficult life ahead, though, as MS would gradually lay claim to her independence.
However, I recall one day when she was beaming with happiness.
It was my custom back then to visit our parents and my sisters every other weekend or so.
Weather permitting, I'd take advantage of their spacious driveway, to wash and wax my car.
On this particular occasion, Cheryl had recently bought her first car - a blue Chevrolet Cavalier.
It was a used vehicle, but fairly new.
Beneath a thin layer of road-dust, it had promise.

So, as was our custom, mom poured me a bucket of warm soapy water.
Dad would get me some soft cloths and a can of turtle wax.
This day would be different.
Instead of walking up to my Talon at the lane's end, I stopped short at the Cavalier.
I washed and waxed that Chevy so that it gleamed as brightly as the day it rolled off the assembly line.

As I was heading home I caught a glimpse of Cheryl through the kitchen window.
She was beaming as brightly as her car; for to Cheryl, that car was a gateway to freedom.

Now she is free.

Cheryl will live in our hearts forever. Life was not too kind to her for over half her life, but she learned to accept and live with her disabilities as a normal way of life. She is finally at peace.

I will miss visitations with her at The Westbury LTCH in Etobicoke. This was her home-away-from-home for the past 11 years and there she made friends with staff and residents. They were kind to her and made her life comfortable. It is all we can hope for in life.

Cheryl is my niece and much like a daughter since the passing of her parents. I will truly miss her.

Have great memories of Cheryl when we were young children. There were the family dinners at Gramma and poppa’ s house, time spent at the cottage and swimming at the DHO. Also
Visiting with her in the nursing home where she enjoyed getting involved with the activities and would want to show us what she had done. She will always be in our hearts ❤️
