Omg what can I say!? Ms. Cheryl, White Mama as my family I have always called her. The sweetest, most kind hearted, genuine, loving women I've had the pleasure of knowing. It's been a few yrs since I've seen her. The last time I did my heart just sang! Love this woman! Although she was sick she was still in super good spirits! Something to be said about that. You don't find too many people sick their body and still is able to pull strength from somewhere and still smile. She was such a breath of fresh air! I can remember very vividly the love that she had always shown us. Spoiling us and giving us the best hugs! LOL miss those hugs man!! Even though she's gone, she'll always be remembered and forever live in our hearts and through her children. Vevlet (my big sister),Cheri so sorry for your loss. She was a good woman. God bless you two and the rest of your family. Love London...

That is my "white Mama"! This was our name that we called her because I am African American and have my birth Mother but Ms. Cheryl was my like my second Mother growing up, I really never knew her real name until I was older like my own birth Mothers name. I can't recall a memory where I have EVER seen her upset. She always had a smile whether big, small fake or faint. Always giving out hugs--tight hugs too. No one had an issue with her from what I can remember. She was really special. I sure wish I would could hug her now. She treated my family awesome! She was such a sweet woman. I know a lot of people will miss her---if you never knew her---you missed out---Heaven has one of its own back.

Love you White Mama!

I will always remember when I got sick with a sinus infection and I would come to your house and you would put me on the couch and cover me up. You always had Cordicidin or me to take. You would say Okay baby take this and go to sleep and kiss me on my head. Cheryl J, heaven is a better place with you there. I love you auntie and I miss you dearly.
