So sorry to hear of the passing of your mom and our special Aunt Sheila. Wish we were there to comfort all of you and to help in the celebration of her life. I always said that Sheila was one of my mentors and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. She was the most kind, compassionate,considerate, gentle lady that anyone who had the opportunity to know her would agree. We will certainly miss her when we visit this summer but she will be forever in my heart and always on my mind. Hold dear to all the beautiful memories . RIP beautiful aunt Sheila. Sending lots of heavenly hugs..

You were so blessed to have an amazing mom and grandmother for all those years. Nothing got her down, not even cancer. Sheila was my lifelong neighbour who always had a smile, welcomed chat and never stopped going, either to bingo, cards, social events or church.

She will be truly missed. Cherish all the beautiful memories. Rest In Peace Sheila.
