Here I am. painstakingly putting the final touches on an obit for Ray Dennis Steckler...and I find out one of my favorite Mouseketeers has passed on.

There's a word for this...but I can't think of what it is.

How this hurts. She was far and away my favorite. When I was a kid I used to kiss her picture. Rest easy, Cheryl.
