    My deepest sympathy to you. Cheryl was one of my supervisors when I worked at Capital Health. Cheryl was well liked by staff. I remember she has attended a meeting and was given an item to help relieve stress. Every time I went into her office to discuss work I would use it. I told her that when she retired she would have to give it to me. Sure enough she did. I still have it and think of her whenever I use it.
