I remember Shelia coming to the office and rummaging through the drawers of unserved processes we had jut waiting to be served. One by one she'd pull out a small stack of the aged papers and say, "I know where this one is now". Shelia always had one of the rarest but well known responses when you asked how she was doing. With a smile on her face and in the kindest, most sincere voice, she replied "I'm blessed". I still miss her today and think of her often. Shelia was one of those people who left this world having made a difference in a lot of people's lives. The number of reflections on here is proof of that. Shelia, thank you for your service and may you continue to enjoy your rewards in Heaven for a life well lived.
