    I have many fond memories of Cheryl from my high school days. She was the head majorette and as a drummer in the Band I always had the privilege of a “Ring side Seat”..We became “FaceBook” friends a few years ago and as a result I’ve viewed several of her Very Good Paintings..My heart goes out to her Family and friends .

    Glen, although we’ve been out of touch for many years, Jean and I always remembered fondly, the times we spent together bowling in the league at Northridge Lanes in Madison, going out to dinner and just spending time together at our house or yours. I also enjoyed playing the piano at your house. We were very sorry to hear of Cheryl’s passing and we wanted to extend our condolences to you and your family. We will keep you in our thoughts and in our prayers.

    Cheryl was a beautiful person inside and out. It was my pleasure along with my classmates at CSHS to enjoy Cheryl as our head majorette. I also very much enjoyed Cheryl’s Facebook posts of her wildlife friends, especially Jack and Jill. What a pleasure to enjoy her paintings also. A few years ago when I was going through a major medical trauma, Cheryl thought of me and sent me a beautiful painting of the ocean at night. I will cherish my memories of her and honor her memory with her painting in my home. Glen and family, I extend my deepest sympathies to you. Rest in peace dear Cheryl.
