    Sending my love to all of Cheryl’s family, I only wish I had been able to attend the services and tell you in person. I always felt so loved whenever I was around Cheryl and it amazed me that she was always so cheerful in spite of the many difficult challenges she faced. She is truly an amazing woman and example to me. I know you will miss her terribly.

  • To Mrs. Timmerman’s family, I’m deeply sorry for your loss. It’s my hope that you can draw comfort and strength from Jehovah God’s promises in the Bible. At Revelation 21: 3, 4 and John 5: 28, 29 he promises that there will soon be a time when there will be no more pain, sickness, or death, and we can see the loved ones we have lost again. Please accept my deepest condolences.
