    My Aunt Cheryl passed away this morning. I plan to tell you all more about this special woman, but she will be missed...

    She planned my wedding and was my matron of honor, was at my daughter's dedication, and has just been a very special person in my life. I am grateful to have known her and to know she is with God.

    She sort of stepped up into my mother's place when my mom passed away in 2015. As far as things mom would usually do. She always cared about everyone and because of her, it seems my dad's side of the family is just really close.

    She had a very aggressive form of lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, and adrenal gland cancer for about 7 + months. I am glad her suffering is over. Her memorial will be in about a month according to my cousins, and we will fly down for it. In some ways I was closer to my aunt then my mom. Her faith was so strong and she always encouraged me in my faith. I've been very low lately though and grateful I feel more at peace today. I think part of it is I have really been grieving such a special woman suffering. She passed away peacefully in her sleep surrounded by family, and not in pain according to my cousins.

    She wrote this down and had me put it up where I could see it.

    "Aunt Cheryl says STAY POSITIVE. I love you infinity times infinity oodles." So I will celebrate her memory instead of wallowing in loss. I am very grateful she was in my life.

    My sincere condolences for your loss. If she knew God then she is OK, but you have to deal with the empty space left by her departure. Praying for you and yours!

    A great tribute.

    I am reminded of the verse:

    "The memory of the just is blessed." (Proverbs 10.7)

    This was my last picture of her in November. It was a very special time with her and grateful for that time. I couldn't find the one without the words, but she really was a fighter.

    Hi Sister, I haven't been on in a while since I started a new job, so I am just now seeing this and wanted to offer my prayers and hugs for your loss of your aunt. Please feel free to message me or do a messenger chat if you ever need to talk.
