Sheila was a blessing to so many people. She worked tirelessly to make sure that the children in Pilgrim's clothes closet had the things they needed, spending hours shopping for bargains. She was an inspiration to so many of us with her strength and compassion in caring for Dan throughout the last years of his life. I know her strong faith carried her through many rough days. I will miss her friendship and caring ways and pray that you find some comfort in knowing how much your mom was loved and how many lives she touched.

I just found out that your mother died last Thursday. My heart breaks for all of you. I so admired your Mom. I considered her to be a role model and I often sought her advice. I enjoyed working with her at the children’ s closet. I will miss her. Please accept my love and sincere condolences.
