  8. I came to know Sheryl very briefly while I was married to her beautiful sister Cindy a long time ago. You gave me lots of words of encouragement to go on with my life after my divorce which threw me in a downward spiral. I thank you for having been such a great sister-in law.I know that you are in Heaven with you loving Mom and will one day be re-united with all who love and miss you so very much.
    God bless your children, Husband and your loving family.
    Respectfully, Dieter P.
