Cheryl and I worked together for 10 years and traveled the "world" together when we retired. She loved her family and was very proud of all. She will be missed.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Cheryl came to my home for china painting and was a joy to have in class with her quick laugh and her sharing about the love she had for her family.
She is deeply missed.
