I just found out about Cheri's passing on Friday night and it was confirmed tonight. My heart was so sadden when I heard the news. I worked with Cheri at JD for 10 years and she was a wonderful person inside and out! My prayers are with the family!

Sadly, I just learned of Cheri's passing yesterday. My deepest condolences to her family and to all those who knew and loved her. Cheri and I went to high school together, and she was always a true class act, always a lady. She was kind to everyone, and simply beautiful inside and out. The world is a little poorer with her passing.

I worked with Cheri for many years at JD. She was a dear friend. Just found out today about her passing. I just couldn't believe it. She was just sharing with me not too long ago about her soon retirement. What a loss. May GOD comfort the family in these trying times.

My heart sank when I read about the news of Cheri's passing. Its been days since the devastating news and I still cannot believe it. I worked with Cheri for over 10 years and she was an amazing lady. She was strong, kind, funny, sweet, generous, stylish, thoughtful of others, and a woman of God. When I was pregnant, she took me shopping at some very nice consignment shops. I found wonderful clothes, thanks to her! It wasn't long after that when she started her fashion consulting, on the side! :) She loved my husband's meatloaf, (when she was eating red meat). My husband would send her a couple of slices, each time he made it. She adored him and my son and always asked about them. She always referred to our son Jack as "my little boy!" I will never forget what a kind and thoughtful woman she was. She is truly loved by so many and it is no surprise. My sincerest sympathies go to David and all of Cheri's family. I hope that sharing stories like this help you during this very, very difficult time.

I had the privilege of working with Cheri at Revolve Fashion for 4 years. When I started there she took me under her wing. She past on to me knowledge about styling and wardrobing, she even took the time to put together a binder full of helpful information that I still have til this day. She was a bright a vicious women I have and probably never meet another amazing women like her. David I met you a few times when you stopped into the store to see your mom. I am so deeply saddened by your lost.I recently lost my father 5 months back and I know just how devastating it can be to loose a parent. There is something I wanted to share with you that was shared with me that helped me. Its a scripture in the bible Revelation 21:4 "[God} will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more. I believe that God will comfort you in this difficult time and not only that he promises to do away with death completely. What does that mean? It means that we will be able to see those we have lost again. And death and all the pain that comes with it will be gone forever. My Condolences to you and your family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

'I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.' (2 Tim 4:7). There was a moment of silence to honor Cheri on the bus today. So sad & shocked to hear about this chic, cool, dazzling, nice lady. Cheri wore inner beauty the best and knew how to brighten-up an early morning commute. Deepest sympathies & prayers for her family. Know that God will wrap His loving, comforting arms around you.

Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear loved one, Cheri. May you find comfort in the words written at John 5:28,29, where God promises to bring back to life those we have lost in death by means of a resurrection. In the near future He will also eliminate our enemy, death.(Isaiah 25:8) This gives us the wonderful hope of being reunited with our loved ones, forever. Until then, I hope the beautiful memories of Cheri and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.

To Family of Cheri, No words could ease what we truly feel. But with God, her joy is eternally sealed. Cherish her memories that death can’t never steal. With deepest sympathy. Darthena Reed (Bus buddy)

Cheri was such a dear and beloved coworker and will surely be missed at JD. My deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. May God give you the peace that you seek.

It has been stated that "God is like a mirror. The mirror never changes but everyone who looks at it sees something different". When I reflect on Cheri McNeal, I will always remember her as my first very best friend and my first love who will live in my heart forever. Her legacy will be the wonderful gift that she brought into this world in David, as well as being well respected, charming and kind. I am very confident we will all find similar commonalities. When we reflect as the mirror reflects, most of us will find different and loving characteristics to remember her by and find them very much so enriching in our lives.
