    So sorry to hear this sad news. Cheryl and I pledged for our high school sorority together. On the way to one of our meetings where we knew that we would endure some hazing, Cheryl said “why are we doing this; it’s silly.” We did get into that sorority but Cheryl never was a push over. She was always strong and brave.

    Carlo, you and Cheryl have been a part of all of our lives since the first day of High school. You made a wonderful couple all through these years. I can only speak for me but I bet the entire class of 71 is as sad as I am to know that Cheryl will not be with us. Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss and know that Cheryl will live in all of us forever.
