My Dear Aunt Sheila, I will miss the sound of your voice that was unlike any other. I will also miss the days we spent in the summer. I will miss the shows my sister and I loved to put together. I will miss you with a large iced tea. I am at peace knowing you are no longer suffering and enjoying the heavens with Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle Mike and of course Dudley. REST IN PEACE <3 Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Taylor Conklin
