MEMORIES OF A MOTHER

Mom (Felicitas Ranada) remembers her daughter as a very smart, outgoing, friendly person. As a teenager, Cheryl was single minded and very happy.  She accomplished anything that she ever wanted to do. She is always giving, loving and spoiled. She never cooked or cleaned her room.

Cheryl wants her kids to study hard.

I LOVE HER.

MEMORIES OF A FATHER

Cheryl’s Dad (William Ranada) remembers her little girl who is always the “Apple of Dad’s eyes”. In their first house, Dad recalls that Cheryl always asked why there were only two steps in their house?  She was only happy after they moved from her one story house to a two story house with may steps. 

Cheryl was the only child for 6 years and so spent several hours with Dad on the couch watching TV while Mom worked as a nurse on the grave yard shift.

When her junior Brother William was born, Cheryl wanted to give him a bath. When she was not allowed to do that, she went and gave a bath to her giant doll.

Cheryl learnt to drive in two days and was driving the neighborhood kids in her Dad’s car to the surprise of her parents.
