I remember a sleep over at Sheila's house when I was in grade school and her Mom was so sweet and made me feel like I was at home.  I enjoyed seeing her smiling face in the later years as well. Gods comfort and peace to her family. Sincerely Kathy(Hill) Blake

I am so sad to see this news.  It's been awhile since I've seen you (Bob & Sandy) in town, but I always think about you when I drive down Hwy. 34.  She was a wonderful lady.  God Bless you all, and give you comfort.
