Linda and family,
My heart aches for you and all of the people that Cheryl knew. I babysat for Cheryl and Tom when they were little. She was a beautiful person. I know that she struggled most of her life with demons. Depression takes a person to a different place that nobody can explain, not even the one that suffers from it. it is a disease, not a choice. Cheryl is no longer in that pain. Linda, she will be there to meet you when that time comes and she is in the arms of her father. That is a comforting thought. Lauren and Kyle, a mother never stops loving her children, no matter what. Don't forget that. Blessings to all involved in Cheryl's life. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
I knew Cherie only a short time but I really liked her and my heart was broken when I heard the news. She will be missed. My condolences to her family and friends. Godspeed Cherie!
My heart truly aches for your loss. I had a great conversation with Cherie a few days before she passed. I'll always cherish that moment. My thoughts and prayers to your family. I will miss my sweet friend. God gained an angel.
sympathy to all the family
