    My heart is so sad to hear of Sheila’s passing. We were good friends in middle school but grew apart a bit in high school. Still have great memories of Sheila with her big heart and beautiful smile! Praying for the family.

    I’m so sorry Paul for the passing of Sheila. I wish I had known sooner as I would have been there for her celebration of life. I remember Sheila way back in the day. I was probably 14. I hope you and Cindy and Zeebadee find comfort and peace during this time. I love y’all.

    I’m so sorry to hear about Sheila’s passing. We all rode the bus to and from school. Just a mile down the road from each other. My condolences, love and prayers to all of you.
