    So wonderful to see Chery's life in photos, and so sorry I was not able to join you all in person for these events. Chery and I share delightful memories of high school and years after graduation. I look forward to our reunion when I reach heaven. What a comfort to know that death isn't the end, but the beginning. May the Word of God give you all comfort at the passing of your dear one. Love, to all, Kay Shafer Watson
