Cherry and i met as classmates in Waldo, Arkansas. We became very close friends. I loved visiting in her home. We attended church together. We have kept in touch on Facebook since we got together some years ago, here in my hometown Kansas City, MO. We were so happy to see each other and visited for a few hours. She and her husband were such a special couple. I loved her very much. My prayers go out to her beautiful family . Geraldine Stephens Feb 10, 2021

I met Cherry when she started in the insurance office where I worked. She was a wonderful friend and taught me a lot. God has surely received a beautiful angel.
