I have only just learned of Cheryl's death in a letter from Kathy and John. I met Cheryl, all too briefly, many years ago when I was Best Man for John at their wedding, and remember her as a fun and bubbly young lady. I am shocked by the news.
Remembering last Christmas with, you. Missing you
I was devastated to learn of Cheryl's death only today. Cheryl remains one of the top three students I taught at Wittenberg University over a forty-year career. Her intellect in class and her humor remain fond memories. We stayed in touch after her graduation. We even connected in Moscow, where she traveled on a break from her work in Belarus. I shall sorely miss her and feel deeply for her family.
Cheryl was my colleague on the Board of Directors of the ECOA. It was a pleasure to work with her. The beautiful smile highlighted a joyful spirit. She is a treasure that has been lost too soon.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Cheryl's family and friends. Our professional paths crossed every now and then while I was at Dell. I always found her to be an extremely intelligent and empathetic problem-solver. The world needs more people like that and is a lesser place with her gone.
I just computerized the 6 or so pages of the diary Cheryl and Bill wrote in 1992-93 from Minsk where Cheryl was involved with the creation of a law library and a constitutuon for the Belarus after the breakup of the Soviet Union. Her Russian language skills were of great use. As her father, we (Naomi her mother ) are very proud of her accomplishments.
Cheryl was my manager at Sun when she was in Geneva and a few years later we met again at HP. I remember her as a brilliant lawyer and a thoughtful and caring person, and I will keep great memories always with me.
I still cannot believe she is no longer with us. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
Bill, Nicholas and Colin: It was a pleasure knowing Cheryl. I met her as an ADPi sister and knew she was a special person...a great smile, intelligent mind and wonderful friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you. May you find comfort in knowing Cheryl is in God's arms.
I was also a colleague at Sun, she was a great role model and a great person. My sympathies are with you all.
Was so sorry to hear about Cheryl's passing. I have such fond memories of our time together at Wittenberg. My prayers are with you today and the days to come.
Bill, just heard about Cheryl's passing yesterday. So so sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers from Bob, Jason, and Kylie Brandyberry.
I was so sad to hear of Cheryl's death. I saw all the emergency vehicles last Sunday, but didn't learn until a week later what had happened. Although we only met in passing, I was aware of what an interesting, dynamic woman she was. Please accept my deepest sympathy, and let me know if there is anything I can do.

Praying for you all, her beloved family....Cheryl was my ADPi sister and even then we knew she would do great things. She was a bearer of light and love and the world will miss her presence. May her spirit remain with all of us. Deepest sympathy.
I worked with Cheryl at Sun. She was a very pleasant person with a fun personality. Our best for the family for having a good daughter, niece, sister and aunt.

Bill, Nicky & Colin,
Our thoughts and prayers are with y'all.

Cheryl was a wonderful force of nature. I really enjoyed working with her at Sun and seeing her last year for coffee here in D.C. I find great comfort in the following words from the Dean of St. Paul's Cathedral, London, and I offer them and my prayers, to you now:
Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before. How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!
Your entire family is in our prayers. We pray that God will give you comfort, strength and Enduring Hope as you go through this difficult time.
SOME PASS FOR A SHORT TIME AND LEAVE A HUGE MEMORY IN OUR HEART.dear sweet Cheryl you leave a great MEMORY in my heart. REST in Peace sweet niece.
Our deepest sympathies to her entire family. We were lucky enough to meet Cheryl many times during her visits to Geneva and always enjoyed her warmth, humor, and spirit. We are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers
I still cannot believe that Cheryl is gone. I worked for her very recently at HP, and I really admired her as a person, a mother, and an attorney. She was so smart, energetic, and full of life ... always enthusiastic, happy and looking for that next challenge. I will really miss her. To Cheryl's husband and children, she talked about you guys so often. It was clear how much she loved each of you. I am so sorry for your loss and will keep you in my prayers.
A gift indeed, John and Naomi. Precious child of God. I would loved to have met her as she was surely a one of a kind. What a life! Such joy! It just glows in this photo! But we will meet again in God's time.
I am so saddened by Cheryl's passing. Cheryl was a trusted mentor, a patient teacher, and a cherished friend. Her inquisitive, thoughtful nature and her warm laugh will be deeply missed. My sincerest condolences to Bill, Nicky, Colin, Cheryl's parents and siblings, and the rest of the Fackler and Hug families. I hope you continue to feel her presence and hear her laugh when you think of all of the wonderful times you shared and the lessons she taught.
Our deepest sympathy go out to Colin, Bill & Nicky. Cheryl was a wonderful person, and we were fortunate to know her. Our thoughts and support are with the entire famil.
Cheryl Fackler Hug was one of the Lord's gifts to us and we had her for 50 plus wonderful years.
I am just so shocked to hear for Cheryl's passing. She was such a vivacious and caring soul. Our very deepest sympathies for Bill, Nicky and Colin.
Dear Bill, Nicholas, Colin & family members,
My heart goes out to y'all. Cheryl was a remarkable woman. She had such a giving spirit. I will always remember her wonderful laugh. She was a terrific mentor to me when I first started my legal career and was so generous with her insights. Heaven has gained an angel. Please accept my deepest sympathies. Love, Nickie Fuentes Toubia
Extremely sad to hear the news that Cheryl is no longer with us. I have not been in close touch with her for the past few years but I remember her always as someone who,like me, enjoyed being part of the global community. Fond memories of working together at Sun- where she was a highly regarded professional- and many fun evenings out in all sorts of places all over the world. My sincere condolences to her family.
I was shocked to hear of Cheryl's passing last weekend. Cheryl was my first manager at Sun after the StorageTek acquisition.
She was an amazing women, attorney, business person, mom, and wife! I have many great memories of Cheryl.
To Bill, Nicolas, and Colin - my deepest sympathies!
I can only express my deepest sympathy to Cheryl's family at this difficult time. It is two weeks ago that I last met her in Anaheim at a HP leadership meeting. She was in good humor and had a twinkle in her eye. She was looking forward to travelling to Russia and helping our team there. It was very gracious of her to agree to come to Russia knowing that it would involve time away from her home and family. It is difficult to believe that she has passed. When I think of her, I think of a very nice and kind lady.
I am crushed to hear that the world has lost such a wonderful soul. I remember Cheryl fondly from the time we worked together at Sun in the early 1990's. She always made time for friends and co-workers, and that never changed even as she advanced to become a vice president. My heartfelt condolences to her family. May her memory be a blessing.
