Very sorry for your loss.

Patrice Taylor says:

I miss her. We rarely saw each other or talked, but we kept in contact via Facebook and I always knew she was there when I needed her. Like good friends do, when we did meet or talk, we picked right up as if no time had lapsed between visits. Now she is gone and the hole she left is big. Rest In Peace, Cherry with an “L” – now you don’t hurt anymore!

The Thuman Family says:

Our thoughts and prayers are with Kirk, Liz and Graham. Cheryl was a wonderful person and we were very lucky to have had her in our lives. She lit up a room when she entered, never met a stranger and always made you feel so special. She was a great friend and we will miss her dearly. May God Bless you and wrap is arms around you during this very difficult time and during the days ahead.

I knew Cheryl from L.W. Higgins High School. We rode the same school bus in Terrytown. We shared mutual friends, anand she was always a pleasure to be around. We reconnected on FB a few years ago and enjoyed catching up on our lives. Also, was able to see and talk to her the 40th L.W. Higgins / West Jefferson High School reunions. she will be missed. I know she’d been ill for a long time and was often in pain. Now she’s in auch better place. Prayers and condolense’s to her husband and family.💐🙏🏻

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
