    Cheri my heart is with you and your family.

  • My deepest condolences to the family, may you find comfort in prayer and the beautiful words of Isaiah 25:8 where God promises us that He will soon eliminate all death and suffering.

  • maria Culligan

    My sincere condolences to the family. May you receive all the blessing and comfort from our Father in Heaven to alleviate your pain. I had the opportunity to feel her sweet and kind spirit and I am deeply sadden by your loss.

  • She was the sweetest lady. The kind of mom everyone wanted. My thoughts are with you all.

  • Trish Elliott

    Cheri and family,
    I’m so sorry for your loss! I know your Mom was an amazing, caring, sweet lady who raised a beautiful family. I’m thinking of you and sending love and healing your way. May the memories of your Mom comfort you during this time and in the years ahead. Lots of love, Trish

  • Your mom has been one of my closest friend. She was my visiting teacher for years with Yolanda. I love her and will miss her sweet smile and her hugs. Rochelle and Paul have been our pew partners for years. Back row seats, best in the church! I am so blessed to know them over the past 38 years. I will miss her so much!

  • I love Rochelle so much and will miss her sweet loving way she always made me feel. I’ve known Paul and Rochelle for 32 years and can’t wait to see her again to get one of her hugsπŸ’ž

  • I want to offer my sincere condolences to the family. I am so very sorry for your loss. Our Heavenly father, Jehovah God, in His word the Bible, calls death an enemy (1Cor. 15:26). He promises in the very near future to do away with death(Rev. 21:4, 5). At that time tragedies and accidents will be a thing of the past, and no one will ever get sick (Isaiah 33:24), and there will be a reuniting, a bringing back to life instead of losing life (John 5:28,29). I hope these words can give you some comfort and hope (2 Cor. 1:3, 4). Once again I am so sorry for your loss.

  • Pam Castleton

    I send my condolences to the entire Cluff family (a big hug to Paul). I will be out of town for the funeral. I am sad that I will miss it. Rochelle was such a dear friend and she taught me so much about loving our Heavenly Father’s sweet children. I loved serving with her in the Elliot Ward. Rochelle was one of a kind and one of the greatest women I have had the privilege to know. She will be missed.

  • So sad, my heart is aching for Paul, her children and grandchildren. Rochelle was such a loving, kind hearted woman and I felt a special bond with her – caring for OUR little quadruplets babies on those first weeks (hours of feeding, diapering and visiting). Watching baseball and any sport with her-she called us the sport-loving Grandmas! She found joy in the simple things in life and had an innate enthusiasm that I loved. She will be remembered with fondness. May her sweet family find comfort in the knowledge that they will be united with her some day.
