Cheri was one of my first childhood friends. We spent many great times together. She always had a great smile and was kind to everyone. We connected on Facebook a few years ago and she still had that smile. Sending her family much love and prayers.

Cheri and I were second cousins. I finally had the privilege of meeting her at our cousin reunion in New Orleans four years ago. When we met, it felt like I had known her my whole life. We kept in contact and I grew to love her so much. I will miss our chats. She had wanted to come visit us in Colorado and I'm so sad that that can not happen. My thoughts and prayers are with Cheri's family. I will miss her dearly.

My condolences to the family during this time. I am truly saddened to hear of the passing of Cheri. We were fortunate enough to cross paths during our high school years and we became good friends. The memories of meeting your family and the school project we worked on at your home will be memories that I will carry with me forever. Thank you for being one of my best friends in high school and I am glad that we were able to reconnect again years later. Rest in peace and you will be missed my friend. Godspeed.

My heart is so heavy to hear about Cheri passing away. I have so many great childhood memories with her. We would play for hours in our rooms with barbie dolls, paper dolls, card games and board games. We had so much fun all the time together. She was one of my very best friends growing up. She was so smart and so kind with such a bright spirit and Heaven gained an angel when she passed. Rest in peace my sweet sweet friend. - Love Jill (Savoy) Adair
