My thoughts and prayers go out to the Smith family. I knew the family through Tammy while we were in high school and Cheryl was always so welcoming when a large group of teenagers would show up at her house. She gave me great advice about teaching and was always so happy.

Words cannot begin to expressed the amount of love Cheryl had in her heart for her family and the people she met. I got to know the Smith family when my brother and Jason, Cheryl's youngest boy, became friends shortly after the Smiths moved to Delta and then got welcomed by all the Smith kids at Sunday dinners when I was roommates with Jason.. Anytime Cheryl was there she would ask about how I was doing and truely cared.. She along with her family welcomed me as one of their own and I was so thankful for them all.. Mama Smith you will be dearly dearly missed and I love you very much.. Heaven got an incredible angel xoxo
