Remembering Aunty Shiela - Leila Sergobin.
She was known to us as the ever pleasant, humble , smiling, jovial, loving and beautiful Aunty Sheila. Many thanks to her for paving the way for us so that we can have a better life over here in the USA 🇺🇸 It seems so unbelievable that she is no longer on this side of eternity. Heaven has gained another Archangel.🕊❤️🤗 Our hearts are saddened and grieved by her passing but our grief is greater still when we think of the pain that Paul and Diane and their families are feeling and even more so her loving husband Uncle Calvin. As a Reverend he comforted others in their time of grief and sorrow so we rally around him, his children and grandchildren and all the loved ones as we express our heartfelt and sincerest condolences.
Aunty Sheila was always the one who attended every family function, greeted you with the biggest smile and the tightest & warmest hug.
People tell you that time heals all wounds but having to say goodbye to someone you love, leaves an ache in your soul that never heals completely - time only makes a bridge over the chasm in the heart; a bridge that allows you to move over the pain so you can carry on without them. We know that the beautiful memories will live on long after we say our goodbyes and we pray for the comfort and peace of God to be yours so you can get through this and carry on.
Abide with me - in life and in death, Oh Lord, Abide with me. From all of us . Sister Cilla, Joe , Debbie,Ray , Aliena ,Brian ,Markie , Joey , Carol and our entire Seegobin’s family. Sail on our inspirational , Stunning, charismatic, and God like Aunty Sheila . We will forever miss you 🥰 and will cherish all precious memories shared with you ! Go soar high in Heaven Sweet heart ❤️. ❤️🥰😢😢🤗🙏🏼😇🕊💐❤️
