Cyndie and Josh,

My deepest sympathy to you both. Cheryl and I had many conversations and they would always revolve around you. Josh, she was always so proud of you. I remember the time you two went to see the movie, Pirates of the Caribbean and Cheryl told me about the great time she had. She would get a special twinkle in her eyes when she mentioned you. Cyndie, I remember a time when your mother and I were walking out of school together, and our conversation was about angels. Now, she is one of them and is at peace.
God will bless and watch over you at this difficult time. Memories will be a comfort. Please know that I hold you close in my thoughts and prayers.
---Paula Johnson

I am sorry Cheryl passed so young. I worked with her at Coopers for many years and she was indeed a friend and excellent employee.
She is in heaven and in no more pain. I will miss her.
