Sending healing prayers, lots of hugs and so much love to Cheryl's family; "I am so sorry for your loss". Cheryl was SPECIAL, her presence was felt as soon as she walked into a room with that infectious smile. I am so thankful for the love, laughs & memories I got to share with her. I know she's leaving a hole in so many hearts, know that she is leaving one in mine as well. Marlene, you were your Mother's world, her North Star. You are surrounded by much love! "I'm going to miss her, too" -Always, Auntie Roni you for sharing her with us Marlene
