I am so sorry to hear of Cheryll's passing. She and her family were neighbors of ours for many years near Madrid. If I remember correctly, Cheryll was one of my first babysitters. I was very glad to get the chance to visit with her when she returned for a party at my Aunt Helen Jagerson's farm several years ago. I have many fond memories of her, her parents and brother Bill. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
