I met Cheryl several years ago when I was her visiting teacher from church. At first I was just doing my duty helping her out as I was supposed to do, but soon we became friends. We could talk to each other about anything, and we did. Both of us had medical knowledge so we would discuss problems that we had with each other.
As my own mobility decreased, Cheryl was always on the phone to make sure I was okay every day. I use to call her my little Border Collie because she was always encouraging me to do better and be better. We disagreed on a lot of things, but she didn't hold that against me.
She was almost always smiling and upbeat, in spite of her own physical problems. She had a naivete that belied the problems she had when she was younger. Her faith in God and his eternal plan was absolute.
I will miss her desperately.

I first met Cheryl in Provo Utah back 1984. We have been friends ever since. Cheryl is a beautiful soul. Such an inspiration of inner strength and faith. She went through so much. Her body weakened, but her faith only grew stronger. And she always tried to stay optomistic and see the silver lining. Such wonderful example of a Christ like life. I will miss her laugh. And her spirit. I know you are now living in eternal peace and joy my friend. I will carry you in my heart till we meet again in the light. Save me a spot!!😇😊
