We have lost a kind and caring person.

    Cheryl Ord always had encouraging words for all those parents of disabled young adults. She always looked for the positive in every situation. Her advice was always sound and spot on with my family. She will be missed by so many of us here in this community. Our world will be little less sweet and heaven is brighter because it has received another angel from this world of imperfect beings. Life is go on here but everyday someone will look around and feel as if someone is missing who could help and that will be Cheryl Jean Ord. I close my eyes today and pray for comfort for all of us who she touched so sweetly with a kind soft spoken word. Thank you to her family for sharing her with us, may the find kindness and comfort to help heal their loss of our Cheryl, God bless and keep us till we meet her again.
