Condolence: Miss David I was so sad when I found out this news. You don't know who I am because I was one of your students for only 1 term and I barely passed. But I sure knew who you were. First teacher in school everyday and the last to leave. I was better in drama class/club and we had Saturday rehearsals sometimes. Every time, you were also there on those Saturdays. Such devotion, such patience! You can rest now but I doubt if you will. Can you teach angels to play Hogan's Heroes on harps??? Hmmm....
Condolence: Merci madame David pour votre merveilleuse, et divertissante introduction à la musique. Je ne me rendais pas compte à l'époque (1975-1978) l'effort surhumain et la patience que tu as du mettre à l'oeuvre afin de nous enseigner comment lire la musique et comment jouer nos instruments. Voyages de l'harmonie à Ottawa, à la Rivière de Français, Sudbury.... toute une gang d'étudiants remplis d'hormones... pas facile! Même si je n'ai pas continué de jouer mon cor français après avoir quitté l'école confédération, j'ai retenu une grande fierté d'avoir appris à jouer un instrument de musique et d'avoir appris les bases de la thérie musicale. Merci encore.
Condolence: One of my favourite teachers. She made a difference. I wonder if she knew how much we loved her class and being part of the band. My regret, not telling her so. Very talented. RIP Miss David.
your sister was an amazing woman who influenced so many people during her lifetime, especially my own son Mark who now has a masters degree in music. She was loved by everyone who knew her and a great friend to me personally. One thing I do remember is that she ALWAYS talked about her "baby brother"
rest in peace Cheryl
Condolence: Condolences to the family. I have fond memories of Cheryl as my music teacher in High School all those years ago. I still have the LP the band made and many more fond memories. It's all we can hope for in life that each person that crosses our path leaves a bit of themselves behind that we carry with us through life. She will be remembered.
Condolence: Ce fut un privilège d'avoir enseigné avec Cheryl à l'école secondaire Confédération. Nous avons tous deux terminé notre spécialiste en éducation spécialisée à l’Université Brock il y a de nombreuses années. Cheryl, vous étiez intelligente, amusante et aimiez la musique. Vous avez inspiré une génération d'étudiants. Repose en paix, mon ami.
Condolence: I would like to Thank those of you who have and or will be leaving condolences for Cheryl (Miss David). I have to apologize for not advising anyone but I have not been in Welland for 42 years and I know many of her friends and students have moved on.The only names that come to mind are Denise Bovine, Nancy Gilbert, Doris Hardy, Louise Pitre and Souer (STP). Again apologies to those I have missed but one's memory does start fading in one's later years. Sorry that I did not arrange for a visitation but at such short notice, I couldn't foresee that it would have been fruitful. On behalf of myself and certainly from Cheryl, an almighty Thank You and hope she had brightened your future endeavours. All the very best Steven David (the little brother)
Condolence: Your music class was a sanctuary for us. You dazzled us with your talents, playing so many instruments and ‘Teach’, you made that clarinet sound so beautiful. You took us from do-re-mi to “The 1812 Overture”, from scales to the Beatles. Band trips included Noelville, staying at the hostel in Ottawa and Sorel. The bus would be at the end of Wellington Street and we would say “Teach, are we there yet?” I offer my deepest condolences to your family and friends.
