  10. Kristy says:

    Just found out about Cheryl’s passing-I’m sorry for your loss. I worked w Cheryl at Heritage Care Center-my 1st job! Majority of staff called her ‘Mama’ and she called me ‘Little One’-always felt special to have been given a nickname by ‘Mama’. She kept an eye on me and always inquired about my current situations, but also my future plans w college, marriage and career. Always felt like she kept things ‘together’ at HCC. She was always eager to defend the underdog, advocate for her clients and share a laugh w anyone. She is a bright spot in my life and will always be a special person to remember❤

    You are truly loved and missed! Watch over us … until we meet again!❤️
