5 Tributes for “Cheryl Ann (Hinrickson) Ganzel

    Art. Saddened at the loss of Cheryl. Yet, I have the Christian feeling that she passed into the hands of a loving and forgiving God. Our earthly journey is not always pleasant and getting through it untouched and without failings is impossible. As you well know, our Heavenly Father is the greatest and ultimate judge who will go the end of eternity to find a way to get His children home. Knowing your sister while growing up next door to you/ her, I remember her always having a smile and a joyful greeting for me. I can remember the times I came home while in the AF and there was Cheryl always the first Buckeye person to rush over to hug and thank me for my service. Be strong my AF brother and as the word says, “This too will pass away”.

    God Bless you and your family.


    Art – So sorry for your loss but you will see her again one day and that is a comfort, I’m sure. It sounds as though you and she had a lot in common — especially your warm smiles and friendliness. May God give you peace in knowing where she is!
