    My deepest condolences to all of Cheryl’s family and friends. Cheryl was a wonderful lady and friend to those who knew her. I had the joy of working with Cheryl at Loomis and we remained in contact through Facebook when I moved to Tulsa. I miss our afternoon meetings at McDonald’s for coffee and tea. You will be greatly missed my dear friend.
