It is with great sadness that the Buffalo Astronomical Association notes the passing of Cheri Harper. An active club member for many years, Cheri was club Vice-President, Board member and former editor of our newsletter, the Spectrum. Admired and loved for the spirit and enthusiasm she brought to public programs and events, Cheri will be deeply missed by all of us.
