To Sheila's Kids,
I am so sorry about your mom! I have only the sweetest of memories of her and your dad. Many years ago your mom and I worked together at R&J Coffee Shop. Your mom was one of my very favorite people to work with! I got to know your family well and spent time with you guys when you were little! I loved your mom and dad a lot, I will never forget those times, they were very special! I will be praying for all of you and your family. Please accept all of my love and prayers and deepest sympathies.
Love and prayers,
Kathy (Hastings) Whelchel
