    Cheryl was my best friend for many, many years when Melissa and Kayla Rose were little. We went to church together, broke bread together, and enjoyed life together. Cheryl loved the Lord. She was a devoted mother, grandmother and wife, to Butch. Butch, you were the most faithful husband and friend to Cheryl. God Bless you for your faithfulness to her.
    I am praying for you and the girls.
