    So sorry for your loss. I became friends with Cheryl when she lived for a short time in Waveland. She would come in the hardware here in town where I worked. She was always fixing something or maybe she was coming in to say hi and visiting for awhile. I really enjoyed the short time we had her here in our small community! Great lady!! She will be missed!!
