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.
