  6. So very sorry for your loss. Cheryl was a kind and sweet person who will be remembered by many. Cheryl and I go back to the Jones’ Drive In era. Her father and mine worked together at American Oil Co and would often share a beer or two at Jones’. Since it was a basically a grocery store, the families were often there. Your family will be in my prayers.

  8. It has taken me several weeks to process the loss of Cheryl. I still haven’t fully because she’s not someone you just immediately accept that they are gone. But I wanted to write down a few things that try to summarize just what she meant to me. Cheryl was my great aunt- I don’t know how many people can genuinely say they had a meaningful relationship with their great aunt- But that’s just how special she was. If you were her family you were important to her no matter what role you played in her life & she wasnt shy about letting you know it. Every year for the last 30 years of my life she always sent me a birthday card in the mail. I always thought that was one of the most thoughtful things in the world. Something so small that always made my day when I opened it. I have saved every card she ever sent to me in my adult life.

    We also shared the exact same wedding anniversary. I had no idea that we shared the same date until a few months before my wedding, & soon after I learned that my wedding day would be her and my uncle Johnny’s 50th wedding anniversary. I felt horrible after learning this knowing that was a huge milestone for them and told her that I completely understood if they couldn’t make it & she assured me that they wouldn’t miss it for the world. I felt so incredibly grateful that I decided to surprise them both at my wedding with a 50th anniversary cake & their own special dance that still to this day when I think about it makes me cry tears of happiness.

    I only got to see Cheryl a few times a year for family gatherings but every time I was around her she made you feel as if no time had passed. She was always so supportive & proud of everything you did. When I think of her all I see is her infectious smile & upbeat personality bursting with joy & love. The morning I learned of her passing I was on the last day of an 8 day cruise headed back to Galveston,TX- a city I will forever cherish memories with family in because of Johnny & Cheryl. I got up and walked to the balcony and stared out at the open ocean and said ‘Fly high Cheryl, I know you’re with Uncle Johnny now’ I still cannot believe she is gone. Madison said it perfectly- She is someone you thought would live forever- but she will still live on in all of us. I will miss her so deeply. Because of her I am blessed with the most incredible family anyone could ask for. Someone like her comes once in a lifetime, & I am so lucky to have been on her wavelength. Until we meet again Cheryl. I love you ❤️ Love, Kristi
