A month after Cherie
passed I had a dream about her on May 27,2006.
This is what my dream was like. I never met Cherie
yet I felt she was trying to reach out to me in her own special way. It was a beautiful dream and one I will never forget.
I have now since then have been to California but when I had my dream of Cherie
I had not been. So it was almost like her way of telling me I should go out to CA, see Covina, and my friends and attend another special Roswell event The Bowl-A-thon!
The first time I went to CA was for the 4th Zeke Lerner Bowl-A-thon that October of 2006! It was a wonderful time and I know that Cheries
spirit was with us! She would have been proud of us Reycled Teenages
The dream I had of Cherie on May 27,2006 a month after Cheries passing
I had a dream about Cherie last night. I was in California of all places in Covina I have never been to Cailfornia or Covina but there I was. I hope to get to Covian someday! We were by the Crashdown and I guess we were at a Roswell gathering of some kind.
Anyway we were outside and Cherie saw me dressed in her famous flipflops and gave me the biggest hug and told me how it was wonderful to finally meet me. Then she told me to not to worry and to just enjoy life to the fullest and to have fun. I told her how it was wonderful to meet her and thanked her.The whole time she was smiling and laughing and having a wonderful time.
It was all so surreal being I never met Cherie but I have always felt a deep connection to her being Cherie had the same cancer my cousin Kerry who is 29 (she will be 30 June 14th) has and I know how hard a disease it is. I feel it was through Cheries helping words to me and her prayers to my cousin as well as her wonderful spirit that now shines down on all of us that my cousin is able to pull through.
On a side note my cousin Kerry who is now 31 had the same cancer as Cherie
is doing amazing and her and her husband are expecting to have a baby boy this summer. It is a miracle being there was a slim chance that my cousin Kerry could ever have children. So we have been very blessed and I think Cherie
had something to do with my cousins recovery and good news!Cherie
always touched my life in some wonderful and strange ways as well. I still remember the night I found her story A Month Of Sundays
. I was going through a crazy time in my life and finding that story was a light in the storm. I was blown away by her powerful and poetic writing.
It was wonderful and I hold that story dear to my heart. Cherie
made me want to become a better writer as a result. Her poem from A Month of Sundays
I will always treasure it was beautiful and her spirit and words live on and have infulenced my life so much.
I find it was a blessing in a strange way to have that dream and in some mystical way to meet the woman Cherie Walley
who has a profound impact on not only me but in the lives she touched.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you Cherisi
Hope all is well. Keep on dreaming.
