  1. I’m so sorry for your loss,I hope you find comfort in knowing the Bible assures us that when we die we are resting peacefully until his resurrection. We all await the promise held out in Revelation 21: 3 & 4 which tells us that soon no more pain, suffering or death, what a wonderful hope. But until then I hope your many memories of Cheryl will bring you joy.

  2. Bob and family: please accept our sincere condolences in the lost of Cheryl. While I don’t recall meeting Cheryl, I know she must have been a great wife for 54 years putting up with you tracking that horseshoe clay into the house.

  3. I am so sorry, Bob,Tim,Bink,and Diana. We had so many good times together, she taught me not only to play scrabble to drink coffee. She lives one heck of a woman we had so many shopping trips to Topeka. I remember one in particular that had to do with the parking garage but she’s probably looking down on me saying shhhh! But whatever we did it always ended in a Scrabble game.,either at her house or my house and coffee pot was always on. I gave her my recipe and showers d her how to make cinnamon rolls, and she made them for her family. I remember Brook just a little girl, sitting in her highchair and she asked Cheryl for another bone. I cherish these moments with Cheryl, and I smile . She was a wonderful woman and I’m sorry for our loss.

  4. Sincere condolences for the family. Cheryl was a great gal and wonderful neighbor. Always thinking of others. Her smile and contagious laugh won’t be forgotten.
