  4. Cheryl always told me I was the daughter she never had. I’ll miss her for the rest of my life and she will never be forgotten. We have amazing memories together and I’m lucky I got the chance to spend time with her. If it wasn’t for college I would be there, sadly I can’t.

  6. CT I loved you as my sister from another mother. We teased,we bantered, and we loved each other. You were the fiercest competitor I have ever known. To be around you made me smile…made me laugh…and made me glad to know you as my friend. I will never forget you and the thought of you being gone is like a part of my life will be missing. I will miss you my friend!!!
