  • I am so sorry to hear of Cheryl’s passing. I loved all three of these girls, Patty, Marlene and Cheryl like they were my sisters. We always had some fun times together when I was dating their older brother. It is so sad that all of them are gone except for Duane and Jon. Praying that God will give peace to the family at this difficult time.

  • We will all miss her. I’m so glad we will see her again. Mom and I are so glad we went to visit her after attending Marlene’s memorial service. Mom is in surgery today. We will not be able to make the service. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you all!
