This is a sad time for family and friends of Cheryl Dunlap during the holidays. Her loved ones are left behind in grief now that they know Cheryl's safe return will never come.

Wednesday night's church service at Dunlap's church provides pause for the friends who will no longer see Cheryl at church, but will remember her for her good deeds.

Brent Thurmond, a long time friend of Cheryl said, "When we had a family member on their death bed and Cheryl went out to visit and Cheryl prayed for them and with them, you know, the world needs more people like that, so we've lost a very valuable member of this community."

For co-workers, their worst fears since the day she did not show up to work have come true. Lesley Sacher, the Director of the FSU Thagard Healthcare Center said, "Our staff is a very close knit staff and we have tried to support each other and keep hope, but today is very heart wrenching, when the news came out."

The body of Cheryl Dunlap will soon lay to rest, but an uneasy feeling sweeps over a community where a killer may still be hiding.

Kimberly Smith, a friend and co-worker of Cheryl said, "I'd like to see that we can all be safe and be ok driving home, whether we have a flat tire or whether or not we have our cars broken down."

And until the killer is found, it will take a long time for many to adjust to some kind of normalcy. The family of Dunlap was too upset to comment on camera, they say they need space to digest it all and they thank everyone for their help.

    She was the nicest nurse. Whenever I went to Thaggard, she always had a smile and made you feel at ease even when you were sick.

    Our hearts are grieved for the family of Cheryl Dunlap. Be assured that we will continue to pray for the person who did this to her to be caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    May God be with each and everyone of Cheryl's family friends and all of those who knew her; God took his Angel home to be with him her work here on earth is done. Remember the good times and cherish all the memories that you all share. God Bless you all.

    Please let the family know that there are some of us that are out there that want to do something for them for Cheryl but will let them have their time to grieve. Just let us know, as a community and as those touched by Cheryl, can do for you to help you thru this time? We are all here for you!
