    Dear family. I worked with Cheryl at PPVI Institute and went to a rosary group with her as well. She was a generous woman who took her faith very seriously. I thank God for her life of service to Him. I know you were such a close family and will miss her very much
    May the angels escort her to the throne of God where he will greet her as His good and faithful servant

    Sending you John and your family my heartfelt sympathy with the loss of dear Cheryl. I met you both this year at the summer intensive class and had Encounter class with Cheryl. We connected because I’m from Yankton and knew her Mom and other family members. Please know I will be keeping you and your family in my prayers. Barb

    I had the pleasure of seeing John and Cheryl in the Fall. It was a wonderful surprise after having not seen them for many years. I was struck by what a wonderful couple they are and how much I missed them and their family. I extend my heartfelt condolences to John and the entire family for your loss.

    Thanks be to God you will see her again and I thank God for another saint in Heaven watching and praying for all of your needs. Love never dies.

    God bless you,
    Greg Becker
