Dear David and family, I am so very sorry to learn of Sheila's passing. Sheila would babysit for my younger brothers, sister and me even though she was a few years older than me. It's hard to believe the last time I saw Sheila was at Kevin A's (former Pelham resident) wake just a few years ago. I am glad I got to see her at that time. Condolences to Sheila's loved ones.

What can I say that has not been said already? Sheila was a kind, wonderful and loving person who would do anything for you by just asking. Our friendship was one of over 50 years. I will miss our conversations, her coming with Jimmy and I to car shows, family get togethers, etc. Her children and grandchildren will always be considered my family. She always made us smile and was always there in good and bad times lending her support. She will forever be in our hearts.
Love you Sheila. God has truly received another beautiful soul.

My dearest sister in law Sheila... my words or heart cannot express how much I will miss you.
I have known you more than half my life and we have so many memories together. I will hold most dear to my heart how you were always there for my children as they went thru life, never missing any events in their lives. That meant so much to me and my husband.
Our Jersey Shore vacations.... they will never be the same again without you there... you were my partner in crime. Christmas's …. Birthdays... Anniversaries... Graduations... Communions... Confirmations...Baby Births... You were there for it all and with such love and pride at every occasion.
Steve and I will always be there for Melissa and Peter... rest easy on that one.
I love you Sheila...no more suffering for you... only peace and eternal happiness for you now.
Till we meet again my sister.
