Cheryl was a beautiful individual, both on the outside and the inside. She was eager to be reunited with her husband of 45 years, whom she loved and looked forward to seeing again. She had one of those smiles that could make a dark room seem bright. Cheryl was a shy lady who enjoyed being social and competing in card and board games. Her family was the most important thing in her life. Throughout the last seven months, she made it a point to express her affection for the people in her life by letting them know, since, in her words, “you could never say it enough.” There are going to be a lot of people that miss Cheryl, and without her, life will never be the same.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the members of the St. Joseph Hospice team, Cindy, Dory, and Brad, for the care they provided over the course of the last five months.
