My deepest sympathy to the Cheryl Gabel Family. I worked with your Mom at St John Lutheran Home years ago...she was a hoot to work with.

All people are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,

Cheryl had a passion and talent for gardening and life. She was a wonderful neighbor for many years. such a kind spirit. I think of her when I see the flowers she planted so many year ago still blooming and thirving... some have made their way into my yard.. and I enjoy sharing their beauty.

Cheryl was such a good friend and we had so many good times together. I 'll always remember our camping and how we laughed so much. Riding to Sioux Falls and getting snow in the middle of June, we were soaking wet butlaughed and had a wonderful time. Cheryl saw the good in every situation and in people. I wil miss her.
