Memories Timeline


  1. My heart goes out to Dena, James, Kevin all of the grandkids and dear great grand child. My brother Bill told me I met the woman I want to be with forever. When I met Cheryl I was just so happy for them both. We had a lot of fun memories including NASCAR, gambling in Oklahoma, Santa Crawl in Reno, stops for ice tea drinks, family reunions, and the famous Christmas party at their place. So many phone calls and texts. Cheryl was the sister I never had. She was a friend to all. May she rest in peace!

  2. James, Dena, Donna and I were heartbroken on leaning of Cheryl’s passing. We send our heartfelt condolences and prayers for your family and friends.

  5. My heart is broken, I miss playing cards and dominos with you, the happy hours we used to have in your driveway, watching NASCAR at No Frills, floating in the lake, lots of shopping and so many other things. Most of all I missed your voice and your sense of humor. I take comfort in knowing you now have both back, and I’m sure you are talking Bill’s ear off. I will remember and miss you forever my friend.
