Cheryl was a gleaming light in everybody’s lives that she touched. A million beautiful words come to mind when she is thought of, the most prominent being her selflessness. Cheryl gave everything and more to not only the ones that she loved, but the ones they loved as well. She will forever be remembered by her altruistic trait. Her intoxicating laugh will be missed the most for how effortlessly it could light up an entire room (and in her loved one’s case -- an entire life). Cheryl’s level of devotion to her family will be an exemplar for generations to come.

Special thank you to Dr. Lele, all the staff in the ICU and CCU at Tripoint Medical Center, and the specialists that helped her through this ordeal.  They couldn’t have been more caring.
