    So sorry to hear of the passing of Cheryl. Such a sweet person to have known. Years ago when Cheryl was in High School, she was my go to babysitter for my 3 girls. They loved her a lot and were not happy if she couldn’t come sit with them. She would talk sports with Troy forever. She will be missed by many. Gods blessings to her family.
