Mom I loved you the day I was born until eternity…
You were the most loveable, caring, giving person I knew. Who always treated my friends like they were your own. Thanks for always being there for me and giving me all the love one could give. Spending this last week with you was so emotional but what a gift to be able to be with you. I know you are now with Jesus, dad and all your beloved family…. I miss you terribly😢 Love your baby Sheila

Relation: Daughter

Mom knowing how strong your faith was and seeing you look up intently we knew Jesus and your family was waiting for you with open arms…, the hummingbird in the window fluttering so beautiful and delicate was already you. The day after your passing the hummingbird was on my cherry maple tree watching over me I know. How blessed to have witnessed such miracles in life. “Fly mom, fly like a bird ” ❤️😇🙏Thank you for loving me so much! Love your baby Sheila
