To the family of Cheryl M. Loving:
As a former radiology nurse, I had the opportunity to get to know Cheryl. She was a very caring nurse who took pride in her work. She was a great person who loved her family and adored her grandchildren. I do believe she even delivered a baby in the radiology department. She was awesome. Heaven is blessed with her presence. May you find peace in knowing she is among other Angels watching over all of her family from above. Cheryl is "Highly Protected And Divinely Directed From the Man Who Minds the Miracles".
