Sorry I can’t be with you on this terribly difficult day.
I hope the memories of the good times you shared throughout the years will bring you peace now and in the future.
Cheryl was a woman who fiercely loved her family. You could feel that whenever you were in their presence, individually or collectively. That’s a lot to be mindful of today and a lot for all of us who knew and loved her to hold onto for the rest of our lives.
