Sending my condolences to Cheryl's family, friends, and customers. When I started attending Murdale Baptist Church in Carbondale IL Cheryl adopted me as a Facebook friend immediately. Didn't know her that well. Just we were sisters-in-Christ. I taught 4th grade Sunday School then and she may have been a Mom of one of my students. Anyway...it was thoughtful of her to adopt me. I quietly let go her friendship for I didn't know her that well personally and just felt awkward in the posts I shared for I knew she was a strong Christian woman. More strong than I at the time. I was saddened when I heard the news of her sudden accident. I will pray for all those who are in mourning. I will praise the fact that she is at total rest with a new body in heaven with Jesus. She was faithful to all who knew her in friendship and family morals. Keep her legacy alive in your hearts, souls, and minds. She loves you this I know. Love in Christ, Karen McNeely McMinn Carbondale IL

Always a welcoming smile that made you smile. She always willing to help out in whatever capacity she was needed in. I’ve enjoyed countless conversations and never a word spoken in anger. She is an example of what love is I am a better man because of her example and friendship. To her wonderful family who she loved oh so dear. You are her lasting love and her legacy continue loving each other and Cheryl’s spirit is alive in each and every one of you. Love and miss you my classmate, but more over dear friend. Always Big E
