Cheryl was one of the first people I met when I moved to my house in Sudbury. I remember Cheryl walking her dog on our street wearing a tan and while wool jacket. I don’t remember what we talked about, but we immediately became friends and gym buddies with frequent trips to the Longfellow Club. And, of course, on the way home, we had to stop for our cup of coffee and more chatting time. Cheryl loved a good cup of coffee!
I feel a tremendous sense of loss and sadness when I think of Cheryl. I don’t expect my sadness to go away or even diminish with more time. People like Cheryl become a part of us, and she is a part of me, and I feel safe saying, part of all her friends who continue to celebrate Cheryl’s life – none of us will forget her or cease mourning the world’s loss of her. Thank you Cheryl for being so much for so many people! We will always love you!

Cheryl was an amazing person and will be deeply missed. The many memories left behind will be the things that make us smile as the days and years pass by. May our Heavenly Father hear the words of your heart and lovingly comfort you during this difficult time. Romans 8:26; Psalms 94:19. My deepest condolences.

Cheryl was one of the first people I met when I moved to Sudbury 24 years ago. We quickly became friends, and that friendship grew and intensified over the years until we were extremely close, and each others' confidants. There are so many memories - countless phone calls, lunches together, lunch groups, Tuesday group, cleaning out each others closets, drinking wine and sharing many laughs. Her death leaves a huge hole in my heart, and I will miss her terribly. I'm grateful she and I had the opportunity to have a couple of long conversations before she passed, where we were able to express our feelings to each other about the importance of our friendship. I hate that she was taken from us all so quickly, and at such a young age, but I will cherish my memories forever. And when I think of her, I will remember her bouncing into a room, with that thick, beautiful head of curly hair, and a wide smile on her face! I love you Cheryl - please rest in peace. Jan

Here are some thanks I wanted to share:

Ray - Thank you for loving Cheryl so much and letting “Cheryl be Cheryl”. That had to be difficult. As she was fond of saying “Sometimes it is not easy be Cheryl”.

Bonnie and Linda - The sisterhood is strong. Thanks for being there for her whenever she needed something. That was very special.

Mike - When I first met you told me to “take care of Cheryl”. Thanks for reminding me. Your words echoed many times. I did my best Mike.

Christine and Marsha - Thank you for being there. She was so proud of her nieces.

Emerson Hospital colleagues - Thank you for providing such a rewarding career and friendship over the years. Cheryl was somewhere between Nurse Jackie and Mother Teresa. Ok, closer to Nurse Jackie (without the drugs).

To all in her Lunch Group Gal Pals - Thank you for being such wonderful friends and confidants. She was so happy with all of you. Watching the way she strutted around getting ready to go was a pure joy.

Jan - thank you for your insight and persistence, without it life would have been very different.

To all of the other friends, that I am too grieve stricken to mention. Thanks for being there, cycling together, and appreciating Cheryl.

Matt and Ben - Thank you for being truly loving sons. Your mom reflected that if she just combined you two she just might have ordinary sons. Ordinary is overrated. Your Mom was not ordinary, she was extraordinary. So aren’t you two. Never be ordinary, continue to be the extraordinary Men your Mother loved so much.

Cheryl, thank you for coming into my life. I love you.

You've taught me a lot about life and people that are in it. When I was growing up you are always positive about everything and situations to make sense out of them. You were the best loving mom out there that taught me that there is good in everyone and you need to find it. Every time you enter the room.. there was always light and laughter. I will always love you Mom and keep you in my heart. Matt

Cheryl came into my life a little over two years ago.
We shared a lot of things that moved me deeply.
We talked a lot that we felt we met before. Was it on a bike ride? Was it in our younger days at Timothys II? Perhaps I asked her do dance? A glance from across the room? Perhaps it was another lifetime? We never figured it out. One thing for certain is that we will meet again.

Attached is a favorite photos of one of our many bike rides.
