    Today 6/7/21 I am just learning the news of my cousin Cheryl who joined her Divine Lord on the Shores of Paradise where she is renewed and made whole again to perfection where no tears, suffering, or separation will ever be a part of eternal life. I know as you were able to run to the arms of your waiting Family what a reunion you must have had. Here Cheryl you will be missed, but not one would desire to remove you from the Glory and Happiness you now experience. Until we shall meet again, I love you, and I pray our Lord will provide your Family remaining great comfort. Cheryl, may you rest in the arms of Jesus for ever and ever. Your cousin Dwayne Davis. To the Family, please accept my most sincere condolences and please remember all Memories are gifts from God that death can never destroy. Also when a loved one passes away that Memory becomes a Treasure.
