So sad to lose another friend from so many years ago. Sheila accomplished much in her lifetime and helped many people. I will always remember her for her quick wit and great smile. I am sorry she is no longer with us, but glad she is now at peace and pain free. My sympathy to her loved ones.

Many of our growing up years were spent together. We had a large group who did many things together. I've been gone from NY a long time, but I will always remember you, Sheila. My prayers go out to your family, you are now pain free, and we are left to mourn your passing. RIP.
