    I was saddened to see Cherrie’s obituary on KMA. I had lost track of her the past few years, but I always enjoyed visiting with her at the library and talking books. I am so sorry for your loss.

    I knew Cherrie for over 35 years and, in all that time, she always kind hearted and thoughtful. No matter what was going on in her life, she would ask how others are doing and giving support in whatever way she could. She was optimistic and forgiving and had a ready laugh. She loved her family unconditionally. The world is a little less bright without Cherrie.

    I was so sorry to hear of Cherrie’s passing. We met years ago at Eatons and enjoyed visiting with her. She loved telling me about her children and grandchildren. May God’s love help you through this difficult time.
