Aunt Cheryl always had a sharp wit and an infectious smile, and she was perhaps the strongest woman I've ever known. She could have a quiet way about her, that is until she laughed and then you couldn't help but laugh with her and that joyful sound. I treasure the time I've been able to spend with her and I'll carry those thoughts with me for the rest of my life. I'm thankful that she was in my life. Rest in peace Aunt Cheryl, you will be greatly missed.
