    I had the extreme pleasure of counting Cheryl as a friend and I got to be her caregiver for a brief amount of time. She was so kind hearted, funny, and just such a sincerely beautiful person. I love her very much and am so sad to learn of her passing. She was always so positive and she really believed in me as a person. I know heaven gained an amazing angel and I will always miss her. She truly holds a special place in my heart.
