    I did not know Cheryl personally but have a friend from Belfast that knew her. His name is Phil Bedford owner of Family Shoe Store in Goldsboro. Our condolences to Cheryl and her family. Im not sure but I may have known Cheryls husband, Gerry Boyle, as a teenager while growing up in Goldsboro, NC. Prayers for strength, comfort, and healing for Cheryls family and friends.

    Gerry, I am at lost of words. I remember when Cheryl and I meet at a telemarketing thing. I had not see Cheryl in a long time. I was looking up her name and phone when I saw her obituary. Cheryl welcomed me Mom and friends in your home back in 1991, while we were on our way to Texas. My . Mom talked it about for years. My heart and prayers go to you all. We lost a loving ❤ Kind soul and Heaven gained an angel. Gerry and Brooks you are in my thoughts and prayers. Cheryl will be missed.

    Gerry & Family, Iam at a lost for words 💔 I have not seen Cheryl in years . I remember we meet at a telemarketing thing back in the 80s. In 1991 Cheryl welcomed my Mamma and friends for a stay at your home in Mississippi. She was the best hostess. My Mom talked about it often. The world lost a loving, sweet soul and heaven gained an angel. Love you my Friend. Love you Punk. Gerry and Brooks you are in my prayers.
