Wishing  a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.  Please remember our loved ones during this holiday season.

Nov 18, 2009 Woke this morning and strangely thought, what's special about today? Someone's birthday? Well, as bad as the economy is and people without jobs and families without food.
God said there's something to celebrate.

Stopping by to wish Cheryl a Happy Birthday.
Party hardy Cheryl, and remember we might not be able to see you, but you are still in our thoughts.

Cheryl did her externship for Networking and Data Base with us at Erie PC Distribution.
She was always eager to learn and help out.

Even on days when she didn't feel well, she gave it her all to better herself.
She will be missed by our staff and customers.

I like many have many fond memories of Cheryl. She along with Gail were always there to help me care for my son Tyler when I was working. My son wasn't just a child they babysat he was treated as one of their own. Cheryl loved and cared for my son. I thank the LORD Jesus Christ that I had such a sweet angel to watch over my son when I was away from his side.
Cheryl will be deeply missed by many, loved by many and cherished forever.

My deepest sympathy for the Spears family. Our mothers were best friends for many years, it brings comfort knowing that Cheryl can now be with Gail once again.
