 I remember hearing when Cherrie passed away. I believe she was living in East Texas and had cancer, but my "rememberer" isn't as good as it used to be. She came from a sweet family and I am sure her loss was very devastating.

Cheryl was a teacher in Henderson, TX. I believe she was teaching homemaking. Her sister Linda Reese that was in the class of 1971 died too, but 2 years before Cheryl.

Linda Reese, Cheryl's sister, worked as an assistant District Attorney in Calhoun County.  She handled protective orders and the like.  Apparently, she published an article on some type of esoteric patent or science matter in her early years.  She had a difficult time not knowing what a judge would do before she put the evidence on.  She was a person that wanted everything to be predictable.  Things are far from predictable in matters where two sides despute and issue.  She worked with John Griffin's office in Victoria at the time of her untimely demise.  Death is so permanent.

I was sad to learn that "Cherry" is gone.  I really hoped to see her again at the 40th, since she did not attend the 30th.  I have the fondest memories of Cheryl and I am sure many people she knew after CHS will miss her as well.

Cheri Reese Thomas was my best friend. We started 1st grade at Point Comfort Elementary and graduated high school pledging to stay friends for life. After graduation, I married and moved to Germany. She moved to Nacagdoches and attended Stephen F. Austin. There she met the love of her life, Ben Thomas and built a home near Carthage. She taught Special Education and Ben was an athletic coach and later worked for a power plant. Cheri and Ben had two children, Clint and Kelly. She was also blessed with grandchildren.

Cheri developed a glioblastoma and passed at the age of 56. She was loved dearly by her family, friends, students, and colleagues. No matter where in this world I traveled or lived, I knew I could call my friend and talk for hours about family and life, knowing we were soul sisters and "at home" with counsel from a friend that truly cared. I miss you terribly, Cheri.

PEACE be with you my friend.
