Cheryl was a loving mother and grandmother who supported her daughters and grandchildren in everything they endeavored.  She had many talents including sewing, singing, decorating, and a love for writing gospel poetry.  Cheryl had a poem published several years ago that reads:


Tis the time for learning

Tis the time to hear

Tis the time for seasons

To change through the year.

Tis the time for reaping

Things that have been sown

Each seed has a blessing

And harvest has to come.

Thou blessings have been

Given from Father up above

Thou seedlings will grow

Stronger with his bountiful love.

Dus thou hear the calling

Of the Lord Jesus Christ

Come unto thee my children

And have everlasting life.

How merciful I am to the

Lord Jesus Christ

He has blessed me richly

With everlasting life.

~Cheryl Regina Miller
