To The Parham and Swift Family
I am so sorry for your loss. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers throughout this difficult time of healing. I worked with Cheryl many years ago. Before we were both married and had children. I thought of her often and regret now that I never reached out to her. May she rest in peace.
