I owe a great deal of gratitude to both, Cheryl and Roger, for bringing their Daughter Tricia into this world, she is the best Wife I could have ever asked for. Thanks to the upbringing they and her Grandparents gave her. I am so blessed to have the Parents-in-law that I have. I am so glad that my Mother in law knew our loving Father Jesus Christ and taught and instilled this in her Children. I feel so blessed that I knew Cheryl and am a part of this wonderful God fearing Family. I thank God for the love, and welcome, she gave me, when I met the Family, and, throughout the years of being in this wonderful Family. Cheryl is now in heaven with her loving Parents, and Daughter.

Cheryl, Jim and I have talked a lot about the fun times we had with you and Roger when we all were newlyweds. Trips to Glenwood Springs, Christmas Party at the Broadmoor, fishing trips with your parents and our little ones. You loved your family and raised great kids. Rest in Peace and we will see you later🙏🙏❤️
