Dearest Cheryl
I think of you so often and never had a way to communicate until now.
We have so many memories together
I used to joke and say I work for Cheryl mansour.
I do not have any other way to console you but this message
But if I were there I would give you a big hug and tell you how much I love you.
May the love of your friends,old and new, and your wonderful family , see you through
this saddest of times.
Remember there are lots of people here in Lagrange that love you and Beau and they are all grieving with you.
God bless you
