28 years of friendship. First as neighbors above the bars, through our own child care centers, our love of Chinese, through divorces and our numerous illnesses in which we supported each other almost weekly. From her Jacks days, to taking her to dr and vets,to the hot tub at her double wide I still can not process this. My heart is broken.

I have fond memories of Cheryl from our days together at school and was so sorry to hear that she had passed on. I’d like to extend my sympathy to all of her family and friends.

I am so sorry for your loss. I was saddened to hear about Char’s passing. This world will be a little less brighter now. She sure had a big heart. Even when we were kids. I am very blessed to have had Char in my life, no matter how short the time was. Char was the type of person we should all aspire to be like. God bless your family at this time of sorrow

Cheryl was always so sweet and loved babies. When I had my twins she made me a big pot of soup that I froze in containers and fed me for a long time during my first months at home sleep deprived caring for my new a babies and delighted in holding them! Rest in peace in Jesus' loving arms!
