I will always remember Sheila's smile, warm greeting and kind words whenever I would pick up Alan to attend an executive meeting.
As club secretary I have known Alan for many years and understand that the past 12 months have been challenging ones for both of them, but also reassuring for me to know that they have faced them together with an open mind, strong faith, healthy attitude and tremendous support from the family.
Sincerest condolences on behalf of the Waterloo Coin Society.

I remember the beautiful Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls that Sheila would make for us all when a new baby would be born in the family. She must have spent so much time making them for us. They were really special gifts.💕
