Cousin Theresa

Hey Uncle Al and Aunt Thea!


I'm just writing to express my concern and sympathy for you at this time. I've been thinking about you guys a lot and I know I should have probably written sooner but I really haven’t been able to bring myself to talk about Sheryl that much to anyone. It hurts deeply and I can’t seem to fully grasp what has happened. I wish I could have come out to Hawaii with my dad to be there for you guys and support the family but with my grades and missed school days, my dad wouldn’t allow it, I’m sure he has already told you this though, but its probably best that I didn’t go because I don’t know if I would have been able to handle it, you know. I still can’t accept it she was too young and had too much potential. She had everything going for her.



Sheryl was an amazing person she was always so cheerful and full of life she always knew how to make even the worst days better, her smile would just light up my day! I know we never really had a lot of time to spend together, being you live so far away, but I can honestly say she was one of my best friends. She was one of those friends that you wouldn’t see for awhile but even though we were apart, the second we were back together it was like we never missed a day. I didn’t just love her as a family or cousin i loved her like a sister. We told each other everything, our deepest secrets, wants and dreams; we traded stories as well as our clothes and often talked about me moving out to Hawaii so we could go to college together, lol. She accepted me for who i was and didn’t pressure me to be anybody or anything else. She cared about people, she never looked down on anyone or treated them differently because they were "unpopular" or "weird" she took them for who they were and that made her beautiful. of course she was outwardly beautiful, actually stunningly gorgeous, but she was so much prettier on the inside which enhanced her outward beauty 100x! and her beautiful personality shined through her to everyone she met. Everyone loved Sheryl, and they’re gonna miss her.. I’m gonna miss her.



 Uncle Al and Thea, I’m so sorry, the world has lost an amazing wonderful talented person but heaven has just received another beautiful angel. I wish so much that it didn’t have2 end this way but I guess it’s not so much an end as it is a new beginning. I’m just so proud of her in her decision of being an organ donor, she offered new life to people and it offers me comfort knowing that she will live on in others and saved lives in her passing. I wish I had been able to share more time with her and I will cherish every memory and moment we shared, but words cannot express how much I’m gonna miss her. I know there’s nothing I can really do to help but if there is anything you guys ever need I will gladly help in anyway I possibly can. You have been in my prayers and I will continue to pray 4 you and your family. May God bless you both exceedingly and comfort you through this time. I apologize if this letter has upset you in anyway, I know its probably not the best time to be saying all this, but I just wanted to let you know your daughter was an amazing girl and I am going to miss her dearly.

love you both,
