  1. So sorry for your loss. She will be missed. From the times we got to see her and do the haunted barn she was always fun and had great stories. From the stories Taylor has told me about her from her past she was a wonderful mom and it was always an adventure with her. Hope your family stays strong and can stick together through this difficult time. Rest in peace Cheryl.

  2. Cheryl was a great friend. We had a lot of good times together. She loved her family, and her animals. She would always try to cheer you up when you were down. She will be missed

  3. Cheryl was always smiling when I seen her. We go way back and I will never forget the good times we had. She will be missed. My condolences to Danny and the family.
