Cheryl was so good to me when I started at the Ambulatory center. She would always look after me. She called me "her nurse". She was a wonderful person and she will be missed.

Cheryl and I had many laughs together. We have also cried together as we both have needed day each others shoulders over the years. There is one conversation that I recall. We discussed our belief in Jesus Christ. So even though I will miss your smile and your giggle, I know I will see and hear you again my friend. Love you My Sweet Cheryl.
