My condolences to Cheryl's family and and her husband Mike. I was friends with Cheryl for many years, since the early 80s. I lived a few houses down from her parents and we would go riding together. I lost contact with her the past few years but I always thought of her. I raise my whiskey glass to you Cheryl. I love you. Rest in peace dear friend, Cindy Servi

When I think of you, Cheryl, I remember flying on horses, on swings, and on skates! Thanks for being a generous kid who always gave me a leg up. I hope there's ponies and disco and ice cream cakes in the next go round. xo. Kris

Cheryl, I am so sad to hear of your passing. You always made me laugh whenever you were around and I so enjoyed your visits and the lunch dates we shared. I will always remember the trip to Hawaii all of us gals, young and old, went on together. That was the best of times. Thank you for always making me laugh, I will always remember you for that.
Love you like a daughter ! May you be at peace.

Cheryl, my dear friend. I cannot believe you were taken so soon. You had too much living left to do !
I will treasure the memories of you and I growing up and all the fun we had. You were truly one of a kind and I will forever miss your infectious laugh and your stories of all the things you have seen and done. I was always in awe of your ability to make friends wherever you went and how you could find the humor in almost anything.
Please leave knowing you have left a huge imprint on me and many others and you will never, ever be forgotten.
Mike was lucky to have had you for a wife and I was lucky to have had you for a friend.
Rest In Peace
