Lindsay and Family,

Very sorry about the loss of Cheryle. I have known both of you since we were in the Eighth Grade. Cheryle was a wonderful person. In recent years I appreciated the times when I saw the two of you together at the University City Library.

Lindsay, words don’t bring much solace at this time, but know that I am thinking of you and your family. Always enjoyed the random times I would see you at Schnuck’s.
