   Wash and drain cherries.  Remove stones and reserve 8 whole cherries for
   garnish.  Place cherries in a bowl; add kirsch.  In a small pan boil 3 T
   sugar and the water for a minute to make a thin sugar syrup.  Add syrup to
   cherries; stir to blend.  Cover and let soak for 20 minutes.  Cut the
   ladyfingers in half, divide into 4 portions, and place in individual glass
   dishes.  Arrange cherries on top.  Thoroughly blend cream cheese, 3 T
   sugar, vanilla extract, and ground almonds.  Whip the cream and carefully
   fold it into the cream-cheese mixture.  Spoon over the cherries.
