Message from Jillian Houston May 17, 2019

I am shocked to find out the news on May 17th by a third party... Cheryl was my mother in law and absolute closest and best friend for 10 years. I was immediately inspired to become a woman just like her, and I was lucky enough to sit with her around the kitchen table and chat and giggle until 2am on a regular basis. Giggles always in adoration of her family. She was the most loving and most devoted wife and mother I can possibly imagine. I’m devastated to hear that she passed away, but can honestly say that she deserves to be in Heaven, where she receives love in equal measure to all that she gives. She was an angel on earth and it was one of my greatest pleasure in life to know her. I love you so, so, so hearwrenchingly much Cheryl! <3 You are the greatest beauty on this earth that I have ever known and I promise to always love like you did.
