"HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to us Sis!  This year it is the first day of Fall and Native American Day!  Know that I'm thinking of you, and love you tons and tons and tons!!!!!!"

"Hi, Sis,

I was recently thinking about some of the things that we both liked.   Utah Jazz, music from the 1970's, watching the Hallmark Channel.

Well, I'm still doing those things and more. I remember singing together on car rides, catching you at the bottom of the slide at the swimming pool.

I miss you like crazy.  It's the great memories that keep me feeling in contact with you.  Bet you and Kelly are tearing it up, laughing hysterically, and helping those around you to be happy in your presence.

Your girls are beautiful, talented, kind, willing to help others and a tribute to the mother who raised them. I can't imagine how you triumphaned over your challenges, were happy and grateful through your medical problems and just kept going like the Energizer Bunny for the amount of time you were trapped in your physical body.  I am so glad that you were such a presence in my life although there was usually quite a distance between us.  I was commenting the other day that more of my family is on the other side.  Working, spending time together and looking in on Sondra and I as we are the last "two" standing at this time.  You know I like Neil Diamond and all of his songs, but I think of you fondly when I hear "Song Sung Blue".

You were quick witted and never let John stump you with his trivia questions. I just learned recently that you passed away on his birthday.  There must be some irony in that.

The legacy you left and your life "well lived" is priceless to those of us who were privileged to know and love you.

I think of you often and very fondly.  Until I write again please CARRY ON, CARRY ON, CARRY ON!

Love your oldest Sister,"

"Seems like Only Yesterday. I knew we had more in common. I love the Carpenters! I play them over and over on Pandora. Happy Birthday Sheila! I'm sure every day in Heaven is a wonderful day, but know that I will be thinking about you today and smiling. Love you!"

"Hi Sis,
You've have been on my mind so often lately. Pictures of you from family photos, moments in time like you riding your little tricyle like the wind behind me roller skating - trying so hard to catch up.
In your Senior photo from High School and from the family photo we had taken to support you while you were in the band,
Feeling I was too tied up in all my health problems and such to be much of a support to you while you were in the nursing home.
The special time alone while I sang to you and just rubbed your back where I could reach during your time at the McKay Dee Hospital Intensive Care.  Telling you to breathe, to relax, that you were loved.
I gave you permission to leave me at that time if you so chose to do so, but you weren't ready yet.  Your strength, determination, loving kindness, sense of humor, your quick wit, and how good you were with all kinds of trivia.  Jeff's Dad was never able to stump you at least in my presence. You were such a devoted wife and mother.  A good neighbor and friend.  A Special Eternal Daughter of God.

I miss you, so.
With all my love always,
Your Big Sis, Rochelle"

"Thinking of you today Sheila. How must it be to be where you are today? Absolutely amazing and beautiful I'm sure. I guess i'll find out soon enough. Love you my friend!"

"Hey Mama,
We are watching a documentary about The Carpenters. And all I could think of was the times we would sing their songs while we did the dishes. It didn't matter how off key I was or out of tune it was, you just kept letting me sing. And with that, I felt like I was on top of the world. Everytime I hear their songs, I'll remember the good times, wipe away a tear, and keep singing their songs."

"I loved Sheila's wit and wicked sense of humor.  She was quick and could say something funny and not crack a smile - just keep a straight face - which made it even more hilarious.
  
She was a devoted wife and mother.

My fondest memory is of a Christmas when her and Jeff came to our home wearing santa hats and toting heaps of gifts for our family.  It was truly a wonderful time not just because of the gifts, but the joy and happiness and laughter and good cheer they brought with them.

So grateful for the many times we spent together in the nursing home by the Regional Hospital. She loved to talk about her family, but many times we just were ----
thinking, feeling, remembering and sharing the quiet - together.

She loved music and her cats.

She also loved hersheys symphony chocolate with almonds and toffee.

I love you Sheila!"
