Tom, Laura and the rest of the family,
I was so saddened to hear of you loss of Cheryl. It is so difficult to lose a wife, mother and grandmother. I have vivid memories of her laughs and giggles and always a smile when our children were playing and attending church in Cornwall. I am so sorry. May God bless you all and give you grace as you continue on with loving memories.

Tom, you and your family have been in our hearts and prayers since we heard of this very sad and shocking news. It was a nice New Year's evening to spend with you and Cheryl and to share the movie but also some laughs.

God has a special angel in His heavenly choir who had a life filled with a family she loved and who cared about her. Even though she will be missed, she has left many memories to help carry you through the rough times. We will certainly remember her smile.
