I am saddened to hear of Cheryl's passing. She was one of my dear friends in high school. Although we didn't stay in touch, I want her family to know that she held a special place in my heart. In passing on the street, Cheryl always took time for a chat. Please accept my deepest condolences. Christine Harlow

I’m so very sorry for your devastating loss. Cheryl was a good friend with a wonderful sense of humour and will be missed dearly.
I’ve had so many memories flood back over the last couple of days. Our kitchen parties that went into the wee hours or our game nights. Cheryl and I would test out new recipes like one of her favourites a chocolate martini. Cheryl was also my go to gal to knit me up some pretty goofy hats for me and Mom. I will treasure them always.
Cheryl, you left us way too soon but your memory will linger on forever my friend. Rest In Peace
