What a sweet little boy he was. I remember so well all the fun we had playing "where is Sheldon?"
when I would come to Aunt Elsie's. Last night I dreamed about all the aunts and even uncle Rhylan were in a room nothing going on just knew they were there. I take this dream as a sign that they were all there to welcome Sheldon. I am so sorry for this loss. God bless each of you and know that I love you
