I had the amazing privilege of meeting you Sheila...class of 67 was fun for sure. But no amount of fun could take away the pain I felt the day I heard we lost you my friend. On this day for the last 17 years....I am truly saddened to my soul for the loss of you and for your families loss. May you still be resting in peace my friend. Thanks for all you did to help me in the academy.
