    I was sorry to hear about Cheryl; I knew her through my mother in law, Celesta LaBlanc St. John, Grace Wanna and Elvira LaBlanc Perez. She came to my first baby shower (my daughter is 29 now) but she was so nice she made an impression on me that lasted this long. I even remember she gave me a baby bath with yellow rubber duckies and said that was her most favored gift when she had her first baby. And she was right; have you ever tried bathing a newborn? It’s like washing a fish. So, i send my condolences to you to let you know that her spirit touched more people than you know. She was a very nice person.
