Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • My deepest sympathy to you and your family on your Dad's passing Cheryl. I've never met him but knew how close you were to him from the stories you used to tell us while you were a student. His legacy lives in you and I'm sure he's very proud of the woman you've become. So sorry that I won't be able to attend the celebration of his life due to previous commitments.

  • Cheryl, my sincere condolences on the loss of your father. I remember you very well for the exceptional pharamacological care and personal support you provided to my father, mother and I when my father passed from Mesothelioma in 2010. My thoughts are with you and your family at this sad time. - Posted by: Patricia Kuz (acquaintance) on: Feb 25, 2020
