    Cheri was my dear friend at Eastwood Junior High and Tuscaloosa High! I have so many fun memories of times we spent together. I lost touch with her after college and am so sorry to hear of her death.

    I was friends with Cheri since you all lived up the hill from us in Woodland Hills. Didn’t see her much after Eastwood Junior High until we caught up on FB. So sorry to hear about her illness and passing.
