  2. Cheri, while I may not have known you as well as others, every time we talked was special. I am so, so lucky to have had you as my grandmother. Rest well, and be at peace.

  3. For Cheri’s Family,

    Your wife, mom, and grandma was one of my dearest friends in high school. Although we lived worlds apart (I’m in California) she remains as one of my all time favorite people. We sang together in school and ate cantaloupe with salt during the summers. I looked forward to seeing her at each reunion. She will be dearly missed. You also have been blessed to have had her in your life. I know she is in Heaven already watching over you!

  4. I’ve known you since high school where we spent 4 years i the same homeroom. I was so happy when you and John moved to Wooster – – so close that we at times rode our bikes to visit you. Game Night and singing in the choir were special times. God bless you.
