    Don, I was so saddened when I heard about Cherrie. I worked with her for over 25 years. I had to go on disability in 2018 and retired 2020. I also had cancer. I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember her smiles and her genuine care for people. She always asked me how I was doing. Praying for you and your family at this time.
