    Cheryl was one of the kindest people I have ever known. She always had an encouraging word and took a great interest in how everyone around her was doing. The world needs more people like Cheryl.

    Cheryl was a very special cousin.. She was always at our roffey family reunions and we enjoyed her beautiful decorated cakes which. She lovingly made for birthdays,anniversaries and other celebrations. She and Jerry would always attend family affairs unless they were wintering in Texas. I am happy that she is with tether Lord and out of her suffering. She was very dear to her family.

    From vacations in the Qzarks, to the McBarker Boys, to Jerry and Cheryl being like second parents to all of us. You and jerry made a lasting impact in my life. Transporting a wedding cake from Osage Beach to Arenzville was quite a task but one well worth it. You are now with Jerry in heaven and i know you are smiling from ear to ear. Love you Cheryl
