    I have fond memories of Cheryl – she loved it when I would cut her hair. She was very appericative of it. My girls loved Cheryl to pieces; they would sit and talk with her for as long as they could. Cheryl was short on words but big on loving everyone she met. The angels will be shinning upon her. God bless her and look after her. I know Antie Myrtle and Uncle Ron you will miss her deeply – may God Bless you and take you in his hands and help you through this pain. Love Holly and family

  4. I met Cheryl in the Day Program at L’Arche and she touched my heart on the very first day. She lit up the entire place with her happiness, laughter and completely open joy. She has been missed these past several weeks and she will continue to be missed.
    Thankyou Cheryl for showing me how to be just whoever you are with no show, no embarrassment, no worry – you were who you were, and I strive to be just who I am.
    You are a presence and a light that I will cherish always.
    Rest in peace, and love and many sympathies to your loving family.
    hugs forever
