Sorry to hear about the loss of your special Aunt Shelia. You always included Shelia in family functions and events which have kept her young. We all had great fun with her, be it Sunday dinner or a pint at the Duke she added life to all. She will be missed, but always remembered.

A beautiful woman and a lovely lady. As she journeys back to her true being, I shall keep in my heart her compassion, her sense of humour and of course, her brownies. My best to the Ryan/Fox family.
