Such Beautiful Work / Demitrice Venters (none) I was looking for a bigger home in my neighborhood, Summerwood, and entered this beautiful home. This home was a showcase home and was decorated so nice. I discovered a teacup and saucer with a different, unique and beautiful design on them. I turned over the cup and read the name "Cheri Blum". Later, I decided to try to look for that tea cup and entered the name Cheri Blum on the computer. And this is when I discovered so many beautiful designs by Cheri Blum. I wish her family the very best and I am sure she was a beautiful person just as her work is.
My deepest sympathy / Dana Lotocky I was absolutely shocked when I heard of her passing. I had no idea. My heartfelt prayers go out to her friends and family.
She is now is in the best place she can be. Peace to her and her family and friends.

I have a print of Ms. Blum's "Fresh Cut Bouquet 2" in my bedroom wall. It's the first thing I see every morning when I wake. What a loss to the art world! More importantly, what a loss to those who loved her. Anyone who could create such beauty must have been a beautiful person. Close
sorry for this loss / Ann Langs (fan)
Hello. To the family/friends of Cheri Blum. It was only just recently that I learned of Cheri's passing. I never knew her personally. But her artwork is in my home and therefore I feel a certain link to her. Being an artist/art fan myself, her work gives me such a good feeling. I remember reading her artist's statement on her website and feeling inspired by her. She came across as a happy, peaceful, contented person, who seemed completed by the work she was doing. I am saddened that her work will not continue, but I am happy that the work that she left in this world will always be here and it is timeless and universal. I hope her family gets to read this and knows that her life's work touched so many and extended beyond just being her vocation; it touches people's souls and comforts them, and my hope is that the comfort and peacefullness will reach her close friends and family and let them know her life goes on in her works of art.

You have my utmost sympathy! / Diane Benton (Admirer of her work )
I am a long time admirer of Cheri's work...and in fact, have a number of her prints in my home! My favorites are the white orchids! Ironically, I was searching for a particular rose print of hers today when I came across this site. I want her family and friends to know that I am expressing my deepest sympathy for your loss. I too lost my precious son...whose artistic abilities were so unique and beautiful..just not made known to any but his dearest friends and family. My greatest heartache comes as a result of my precious son ending his beautiful life at age 30..Christmas Day 2003. Why? We will never know the answer as he is the only one who truly knows....but left us no explanation.
Your grief, pain and heartache will never go away, regardless of what you are told. Just thank God each day that Cheri left behind such beautiful legacy...! May God give you ongoing peace. Diane

In Memory of A Great Artist, Cheri Blum
There's always a "Bridge" connecting Heaven and Earth for everyone, And certainly for you to cross toward Heavenly Home above, an American Great Artist, Cheri Blum, Heaven, the Home up there is where you peacefully rest and eternally live, Where there are no toils nor senses of grief, Where water and weather are fabulously fair, Where other humans and entities wish to be there, Where flowers in bloom joyfully smile and dance in the sun, Where lovely birds sweetly sing and have great fun.
Heaven is where the "River of Life"endlessly flows.
The Home Beyond is the "Land of Love and Care", You and your loved ones who passed away are contentedly living there, Painting, singing, dancing and floating on air, Watching and waiting for your folks and friends, Who'd also tread along the "Bridge" sometime in the end, To be immotal and free of pain. Then, altogether, everyone will meet and never be away, Living happily, together, all night and day. A booundless joy to treasure always.
Enjoy your rest in the LOrd,Cheri, Your work of art admirer

May You Always Have An Angel by Your Side
“May you always have an angel by your side Watching out for you in all things you do Reminding you to keep believing in brighter days Finding ways for your wishes and dreams to come true Giving you hope that is as certain as the sun Giving you the strength of serenity as your guide May you always have love and comfort and courage And may you always have an angel by your side Someone there to catch you if you fall Encouraging your dreams Inspiring your happiness Holding your hand and helping you through it all In all of our days, our lives are always changing Tears come along as well as smiles Along the roads you travel, may the miles be a thousand times more lovely than lonely May they give you gifts that never, ever end: someone wonderful to love and a dear friend in whom you can confide May you have rainbows after every storm May you have hopes to keep you warm And may you always have an angel by your side”

I too lost my son, it will be a year on Feb 4. I know the pain. May god be with your family. I also invite you to share his web site memory-of-duane-suess.com. God bless. Close
Please accept my condolences. In times of grief it is very hard to know what to say that would be comforting, especially since I am a stranger to you.
When we lose loved ones, and those we admire in death so many emotions and thoughts flood the mind. Some wonder, where the deceased are, can they see or hear us, will we see them again? If you have wondered these things, please see the following web link that has some very comforting thoughts from the Bible.
Painted sky / Stephanie (Best Friend )
Cheri died in November and only then, riding home from work, did I begin to really see the skies at night change. The drastic colors at sunset. And I tell myself, she is still painting for me, for her parents.... in this beautiful place we live. We are reminded of her love and Gods love for this world and for us! I miss my friend but she continues to bestow her gifts of warmth and beauty to me everyday. Close

I recently discovered Cheri's art by purchasing a number of products with her designs on them.
Captivated by the elegance of her work, I sought more of it only to discover that this beautiful talent is now gone from life.
My sypmpathies to her family and friends. I am more honored than ever to have something of her art in my treasured finds.

Sorry/ Kevea Phipps (none)
Its always so hard when someones life has ended. Even if you dont personally know the person you still feel hurt at your heart. I wanted to share a scripture with everyone who visits this website. Its at Rev 21:4, it says, "and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I hope that this encourages everyone here. Close

Cheri there is only one reason why you was taken so soon from this earth.Heaven is a beautiful place and God needed an angel to paint the beautiful sights so the other angels could send the pictures to their loved ones in their dreams.he chose you I know that does not ease the pain your loved ones are going through but I pray that in time your memories will make them smile once again.

Who can say where the road goes where the day flows - only time
And who can say if your love grows as your heart chose - only time
Who can say why your heart sighs as your love flies - only time
And who can say why your heart cries when your love lies - only time
Who can say when the roads meet that love might be in your heart
And who can say when the day sleeps if the night keeps all your heart
Night keeps, all your heart
Who can say if your love grows as your heart chose - only time
And who can say where the road goes where the day flows, - only time
Who knows - only time Who knows - only time... Close

You'll never know what you've done for me What your love for me has done for my soul And you'll never know the gift you've given me I carry it with me (yeah, yeah)
Through the days I had to think of days before You made me hope for something better (yes you did) And made me reach for something more
Chorus: You taught me to run, You taught me to fly Helped me to free the me inside Helped me hear the music of my heart Helped me hear the music of my heart You opened my eyes You opened the door To something I've never known before And your love (your love) Is the music of my heart (music of my heart)
You were the one always on my side (always on my side) Always standing by (always standing by) Seeing me through You were the song that always made me sing I'm singing this for you (singing this for you baby)
Everywhere I go I think of where I've been (Think of where I've been) And you were the one who knew me better Than anyone ever will again
What you've taught me Only your love could ever teach me You got through when no one could reach me before 'Cause you always saw in me all the best that I could be It was you who set me free
