      With each passing day praying you find comfort, healing, peace, and strength in your loving and beautiful memories of Cheryl. Everyone should be so blessed to have a Cheryl Hamilton in their lives, I was one of the lucky ones having her as a good friend for over 50 years. Cheryl will be greatly missed, but will always remain in my heart for all the fun and special times we shared.

      With heartfelt sympathy for your deep loss. God bless Cheryl & the entire Hamilton & Surges families
      ❤️Chris & Mark

    My love and prayers are with you all. I, like you, will miss her so much. It was such a privilege sponsoring her for 16 years, although most of the time she helped me more than she knew!

    John, Ashley, & Ritchie,

    I am SO sorry for your loss. I loved Cheryl, enjoyed working with her and our many trips to Washington state. I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to visit with her and you, John, in early December. What a laughter-filled visit that was!
    Memories are precious and I cherish mine of her.
