  3. Kate Burrell says:

    Cheryl and I were friends/family from the moment we met. I remember as a child the phrase “Never met a stranger”, but I never truly understood what that really meant until meeting Cheryl. Such a complementary soul! She always had positive things to say of everyone who was a part of her life. And her green thumb was definitely something to envy! We were all blessed to have known her.
    Thank you, Cheryl. The memories of you are golden.
    With Love, Kate

  4. Tracey Burrell says:

    Cheryl will be missed and always loved. Her kindness to me the one time I spent about a week with her and my Uncle Richard when they traveled to New Orleans on the Harley was such a great visit that I will never forget. She took loving care of the last poinsettia plant my Grandmother had before her death for many years after and posted pictures each year for the family to see how much she treasured the love of her mother in law. I didn’t spend much time with her in the last 18 years because of the distance but she always made time to stay in touch with me over the years. She was a precious angel
