"So sorry to hear this sad news. Cheri and I grew up together in Highland, Indiana (Lakeside). We were childhood friends and had lots of fun growing up together. I was privileged to have her as my maid of honor in my wedding. Unfortunately it was difficult to stay in touch over the years. Cheri had a wonderful family that I got to know. I will miss my dear friend! My deepest condolences to her entire family. Diane and Lonnie Vandiver"
