I am so very sorry to hear this news but I am not surprised as Cheri has always kept in touch and I have tried to get ahold of her this summer. Cheri's grandmother Marie and my mother Josephine were sisters and we all lived together in the Laurel Apts. in Mpls. I babysat for Cheri and her siblings when they were little. We both worked for the school district and I would see her there. She has never forgotten my birthday and the last message I have from her was last Christmas. We visited her and Mike in 2009 and had a great time. Losing her is leaving a big whole in my heart.
