    My condolences to the entire family. My prayers are with you all. I am so sad to hear about my dear longtime friend. I am so sorry I couldn’t be there….I was on a cruise and just got back today. Sheila and I go way back, we both retired as cafeteria managers. I was her hairstylist for several years. When she wasn’t able to come to my salon, I would go to her house to do her hair. Sheila was a dear friend. We kept in touch often. Sheila had a big heart and loved her children and their families so much. I will always cherish the many good memories her and I shared. R.I.P. my friend. I love you and I already miss you.
