    I’m going to miss you terribly, girlfriend. As the gracious, Southern hostess you always were, I’m sure you are making and serving meals to your loved ones in heaven. You were always the happiest when you were making others happy! Save me a seat at your table! Love you.

    My heart is broken. Cheryl and I had a very special friendship dating back to 1981 when we met at Decatur
    Federal Savings and Loan. We became immediate friends sharing our humble pasts as well as sharing the joys
    of raising two teenage daughters and eventually the wonders of grandchildren. I absolutely loved this wonderful
    and beautiful woman.

    I have thought about you all day, after going to the reception yesterday in your honor. you would have been so proud of the girls and Will for the way they handled everything I am going to miss you so much and the way you were always there for me. I have some great memories of us growing up together and all we went through together I love you and will really miss our trips and just knowing you were more than a friend you were closer than a sister. John you are the best for loving her and taking such good care of her.
