I had the privilege of working with Cheryl for 12 years at FASC. From the first day we hit it off. She was a mess to work with. Always had the craziest sense of humor. You never knew what was gonna come out of her mouth. She went from Angelic to Raunchy in 2.2 seconds. She always made everyone around her laugh. The only thing we could come up with to usually get her back would be to make a joke about her being short. There was always teasing and just plain fun when she was around. She never let her RA slow her down either. She used to say as long as she worked and stayed active it wasn't gonna beat her. She was stubborn when it come to her own health but was a fighter when she needed to be. She was an awesome cook and we shared many recipes. Her love for animals was awesome. She watched my puppy Jaxie 6 weeks ago. I remember her saying to me "I will love her like my own" I had no doubt she would and she did. Poor Angus was blessed to have her as a mommy. I know she is in Heaven right now surrounded by a lot of furry friends. Cheryl was a blessing in my life who I will truly miss terribly. I pray for comfort for her husband and family. You were taken from us too soon. But your in a much better place. I can hear you saying awwwww, all this for me? Yes girl, all this for you! Lol, I am not saying goodbye my short crazy friend cause I will see you again one day!!-
