Cheryl’s Story

Site created on November 28, 2018

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.  As you may know, after suffering with back pain and nausea for most of the summer, and visiting many doctors and enduring many tests, Cheryl was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.   However, by God's grace, we are fighting, praying for and expecting a complete healing.  

A favorite verse of Cheryl's...

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Other favorite sayings of hers...
"I don't need to be better than anyone else, I just need to be better tomorrow than I am today." 
(Sign on Cheryl's board in her classroom)

"Everybody wants to have friends, its just that, not everybody knows how to be a friend. So be a friend to everybody."  (Cheryl's dad, Jack Stoner)

We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

Journal entry by Tom Elliott

Lots of visitors this week.  Elaine (Cheryl's mom) got here from Florida last night and sat down and they held hands.  Even though her plans were changed, she is very happy to be here in cold Michigan.

It's really nice to see everyone, and you know Cheryl enjoys talking.  She also loves the cards that people are sending.

Just let us know if you want to stop by for a visit.
