    My deepest sympathy to Sherman and family. Cheryl brought her professionalism to the job, her sense of calm to an ever-changing work environment and her broad business experiences to help build a stronger research department and her culinary talents just to balance things off. Cheryl was incredibly generous and giving of her time to listen and her sage advice when needed. We will hold a special place in our hearts for Cheryl always.

    Cheryl was one of a kind, an exceptional woman, so thoughtful, caring, kind, gentle and professional. When we needed medical care for Mom, Cheryl was there and gave freely of her time and talent. When my parents were alone, Cheryl always looked out for their welfare. Even when she was in the hospital, Cheryl was concerned about my parents’ health and well being. She was an easy person to love, and we all truly loved her. Cheryl will live on in our hearts; she will not be forgotten.
    Our deepest sympathies to Sherman and the entire family.

    Cheryl was the type of friend that no matter how long the time or how infrequent the conversation, we just picked up where we left off! She was one of the ‘true’ friends, that will forever be in my life and heart. We shared so many laughs and so many tears. I’m so grateful that she was part of my life. I will always love you CAH!
