My deepest regrets for your loss.
Cheryl and I started the same day at NetSuite, sat across cubicles, both previously worked at Baan. Cheryl always brightened my day with a great story about the horses. Disappointed that we did not make it to lunch as planned. She was so optimistic she would feel up to it soon.

My prayers are with the family.

Janis and I will always remember Cheryl as a kind sole who always had a smile. Even through all she went through she was strong and giving to all. We will both miss our friend. Our thoughts and prayers to you Paul and your family. I bet by now she is riding a horse or her beloved bike.

Cheryl … girl you are one of a kind, so unique, so authentic. Those of us that shared parts of your journey in this life are blessed indeed. Your joy, energy, childlike curiosity, and Super-Cheryl-Spunk added such spice to our lives, and I am grateful for knowing you. In business, you helped so many people to make their businesses and lives better and more rewarding. Well done Cheryl – you made a difference. I hope you can rest, and of course, celebrate.

Happy Trails Cheryl …. until we meet again !!!

Just wanted to say Cheryl was a wonderful cousin to have and a source of inspiration and strength for me. I’ve never known a stronger person in my life. She just kept going and like the sun’s rays, spread her warmth and cheer everywhere. Bless her on her journey.
