I remember Cheryl well.  She was very quiet and shy for the most part but was also outgoing at times.  She gave excellent speeches is our 10th grade speech class and shocked everyone by how prolific of a speaker she was! One student commented that she went from being a mouse to a lion once she got up in front of the class.  We were good friends for at least 2 years.  It saddens me that she has passed away.  I'm happy that she got married and that she had a daughter.  I was married the same year as she was.  She will be missed.
