    When we were not spending time at our lake cabin next door to Cheryl and Bob, we knew Cheryl was watching the cabin just as she is watching over us and Bob now. She loved her cats, chickens, and Bob. Her upbeat personality will be missed. To know her was to love her.

  6. Cheryl : You were my friend/sister/ next-door neighbor for 20 years. You & Bobby have been loving & helpful friends to me & (HONEY).It is shocking to know that you won’t be at my door to check on me. I won’t see Cowboy walk you around the yard. I was blessed to be a part of your life. To Bobby & family: Prayers & tears go to you during this time of grief. GOD’s new angel will be watching over us, just as she did on earth. Cheryl had so much love for all her family & was so proud of you.

  7. If roses grow in Heaven, Lord
    Please pick a bunch for me.
    Place them in my Nana’s arms
    And tell her they’re from me.

    Tell her I love her and miss her,
    And when she turns to smile,
    Place a kiss upon her cheek
    And hold her for a while.

    Because remembering her is easy,
    I do it everyday now,
    But there is an ache within my heart
    That will never go away."

    your 1st grand baby Kee
