My heart has been so heavy because I never thought I would be saying goodbye to you in death. Sheila we have shared so many times together until it’s too much to type. You became my friend because we shared the same acquaintance 30 + years ago if my memory is correct. We’ve been thru ups and downs together all the while you kept me looking like a star with all the different hairstyles you gave me over the years. No one can do my hair the way you did. I will always call you my sister. My
Best friend, my buddy. Now you up there with my son so see after him. You are now at peace and no more suffering. But I must say you fought a Good hard fight and maybe one day they will find the cure to cure Cancer. Be that angel that you are and until we meet again I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU

Shelia you will always live in my heart. These past few days have been rough. I miss us talking no less than 5 times per day. I will always be grateful to all that you have done and been for me. You were my big sister, hairstylist, friend, other mom when I needed, counselor, etc. Thank you for always believing in me. I remember our random trips and endless conversations. Sis my heart is so heavy right now. I will always love you.

Love Always,
