There are no words however heartfelt that can ease your sorrow at this difficult time, especially when you lose your dear wife and best friend of many years may it strengthen you and the family to realize that those who care for you are close in heart. Please read Psalm 34: 17-19 John 5: 28, 29 Jesus spoke of a resurrection hope that bring comfort to all mankind when god will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be nor more neither will mourning nor pain the former thing have pass away.

Keith, Tami and Jeff I am so sorry to hear about your mom. Sheila was such a wonderful person I enjoyed growing up with her in my life. I remember the first time we met thanks to roger putting roger gross was here on the foundation bricks on your house in Linwood and then come to find out my dad knew your parents. And that began such a fun filled relationship between our families. And now Sheila is up in heaven reunited with family and friends who have already passed. Sheila will always be in your hearts and memories. Regina
