Tell all the ladies from my class I said "Hey" :lol:

 

And Cherry was a great lady. The last time I talked to her she reminded me of a song that we collaborated on in High School. I wrote the words and she put it to music. She said she still had the original put away. She will be sorely missed by a great many.

 

But, I plan to see her again on the other side!

Is this the Poplar Springs Baptist in Lithia Springs? I attended there some when I was in High School. I think I remember her. The name is familiar to me.

Yes, I think so. It's not the one on Brownsville road.

Yes, she was. But she was always that way from the time I knew her. Never slowed her down any. I remember in high school she was just one of those people that it felt good to be around.

I never had the pleasure of hearing her sing, but your right she made everyone feel good to be around her!

 

She will be missed! Prayers to all the family!
