Mary Lee, Jody, Terry, Scott, I am so very sorry. I remember it well when I graduated from Lawton High in 1963 and then went off to OU, came home for Christmas break to find out Cheryl Ann Peterman had come into the world and now she is gone, too soon!

You weren't just my big sister, you were my protector, substitute mom, and most importantly my friend. You've taken care of me my whole life and I wanted to be able to tell you how much I appreciated you!! I just wish I had gotten the chance to tell you that and how much I love you!! Fly with the angels my sister!

Cheryl Gillis has to have been one of the nicest people I've ever met. Her smile was in her eyes. Her laughter was sweet. She will live on in my memories.
