  1. I never would have felt ready to say good-bye to someone as special as Sheila, but this timing feels especially hard. She was so young and was such a good friend to me and to many she knew. I am going to miss her. Wishing your family comfort and strength for the days and weeks ahead. Susie

  2. Sheila was a bright star 🌟
    Always a big smile and hugs. Hugging her now – SheShe Rest In Peace.
