  1. Cheryl, I have so many great memories of all the fun we had when our children were younger. You were always an inspiration to me. You were the best mom and such a great friend. I am missing you, but looking forward to seeing you again in heaven.

  2. Heather and family, my prayers and love are with you all in this special time. Having gone thru this 2 times with my dad and stepdad, I know what you are going thru. If you ever need to talk, just text me or call me and I will be available. God’s love will help you thru this.

  3. My dear precious friend, I have so many memories of our childhood years growing up. The “shows” we would put on for the neighborhood, spending the night well, ok, I always wanted to go home in the middle of the night, I know, playing in the playhouses in our yards..You always wanted to play dolls and I always wanted to play with cars. I hated when you moved across town. Yet, our friendship endured. Because of you & Will, and others who were part of Idlewild’s youth group I came to know the Lord. Even though we haven’t spoken in years, my heart aches in your passing. I know you are in heaven. Say hi to my folks for me. I love you dear friend.
