    My sincere sympathy to the family. Sheila and Joe were our special neighbors on Holmes. .Through the years we enjoyed many conversations in our front yards. I so admired her special pride in her beautiful home. I will miss our occasional phone visits.

    Our heartfelt sympathy to Sheila’s family on her passing. Her late husband Joe was our best man at our wedding, and we enjoyed our friendship with him and Sheila thru the years. She had a caring, lively personality and was fun to be around! May she rest in peace with Joe in God’s tender care.
