  1. I had an incredible crush on Cheryl when I was 10 and she was 12. Part of my childhood died when I heard of her passing. RIP Cheryl.

  2. I knew Cheryl as a teenager. She gave me her phone at some mouseketeer event, and we talked for hours on the phone for a couple of years. Then when I was 16 and finally had a car, I went to visit her at her Sherman Oaks home. She once told me that she just missed getting the role of Gidget, that Sandra Dee eventually got. I was crushed when she married, but several years later, my mom, who was a nurse, met Cheryl in the hospital, when her husband was there, after some race car accident.
    I am once again crushed, and part of my childhood has died too.
    RIP Cheryl Loved you heaps
