Cheryl was a great human being and will be missed. Everyone at LSS (Lutheran Social Services) loved Cheryl, from the staff to the clients. Cheryl's kindness and great spirit touched everyone she met and i am honored to have known her and cannot express how much she meant to me and how much she has gone out of her way to help me and others here at LSS.
