Random things I remember about Sheila: the mini-bike wreck--how she picked up and carried Debbie all the way home...when she taught me how to make cream gravy S.O.S...how she taught me about the birds and the bees with the clever visual aids of a brush and comb...her roping and riding one of the huge support posts when it tried to float away while we were helping H.E. build the dock at the lake lot in Granbury....She was one tough gal. Rest well, Sheila,
Continued overleaf...
