    Cheryl always made my day when she would bring Cooper in for hos grooming appointments. When she would drop him off, he would not give her kisses. He would kiss me, or, any of the other girls on our staff, but, not his momma. When she would pick him up, though, he would give her so many kisses. It tickled us so much. Cheryl was always so sweet and smiling, always took the time to ask how I was and how my day was going. I just loved visiting with her & helping her spoil Cooper. My heart is just broken for her, for her family & by the loss of a sweet friend. I will be missing her smiling face & easy going personality. Fly with the angels, Cheryl. ~♡~ Love, Tonja

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I was so blessed to know Cheryl. She would bring her mother, Lena to the beauty shop on her lunch break to get glamorous! Cheryl really had a great personality and was loved by many. I will miss her but The Lord needed her more. She is with the angels 💜

    Cheryl was one you could always count on for a smile and a positive attitude. I graduated from High School with Cheryl and am glad that I could call her a friend. My prayers and warmest thoughts are with her family during this difficult time. Rest peacefully, Cheryl – you will be missed.

    I was shocked to hear you had passed away. Shocked and saddened! But I know you are at peace, sittin’ down with your dad and nephew, trading ‘wae’ stories!

My heart, love and prayers go out to the family I pray Gods everlasting peace and comfort to surround you all. With love.

    Wish I could have been there today to say goodbye. Cheryl, you were a force all your own. You made us laugh, cry, work harder, and see things in a different light. I can’t think of the years at Firstcare without think of you and the ‘good times’ in Marketing with Chuck and the crew. You were an inspiration as well, and your love for the Lord was infectious. Thank you for being a friend. Love to your family as they celebrate your life.

    I was childhood/neighbors friends with Cheryl. We rode motercyles in the fields behind our houses. We reconnected a few years ago through Facebook and friends. I will miss talking with her and remember the old times. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family. I spent many hours with Lena and Dan at their home. Thanks for the friendship and memories.
