Cheryl was my sisters, neighbor. I became friends with her quite quickly! She felt like that fun younger Aunt that everyone loves. As the years went by she became one of my best friends. She was someone I leaned on during some really hard time, she was a listened, she was words of encouragement and a cheerleader in my corner. I remember bringing over my 2 born son, he was just a few weeks old. She told me it was the first time she had ever held a baby. She melted and started cooing at him. I remember smiling so big. I will treasure that special moment. Selfishly I will miss her so terribly. I find myself sneaking a way to have a few moments of missing her. However I am so, so THANKful she is with Jesus now. To be free of pain, to be cooking up a storm, to be with her Doberman Martha and waiting for John to join her in Paradise! It's said that a thousand years is only one day in heaven, it makes me happy to know she doesn't have to wait long to see us again. Cheryl I love you so! I can't wait to see you again!
