Mrs. Shergalis was a wonderful lady that my family absolutely loved. Mrs. Josephine was a very intelligent lady and I always enjoyed visiting with her and Mr. George. My father was their physician for many of years and we became friends. I enjoyed making my yearly Christmas visit. I will always remember Mrs. Shergalis and the love she had for her fellow human beings. She taught me a lot about life as a young man which made me a better grown man.
