A heart for giving and in generosity
A heart set in warmed caring
A heart full of smiles for everyone
A heart full of laughter echoes throughout her home still
Sheila, you were more than what can ever be
Written and remembered by.
Remembered by people that love you
Cared for you and waited for you as you will now, for us.
Soon we will all meet again to be together as family forever.
In the grand house of our Lord alone has prepared for us all.
We will all miss you, only for a while, now as we thank the Lord, for allowing us, your family, to have known you. To have been with you, to have walked with you for a short while.
