Cheryl was without question one of the kindest, most selfless people I have ever known. I met the Underwoods in 1995 when I shared a class with Paul at McIntosh Middle School. The family accepted me as if I was another son and I can proudly say that Cheryl was my second mom. I love you and I’m so sorry that we haven’t talked in so long. Skip, Paul, and Kristen I love all of you so much and I am so incredibly sorry for your loss.
