    To our dear Bob and all other family and friends. It was an unhappy day when we heard of the death of our Sheila. Now, we will have to love her from afar, for she flies to heaven while we can only wave goodbye. My hope is that she will look down and gaze upon those who love and miss her each and every day and be there when we depart this world to join her. Rest in peace, little sister, we will look after Bob and keep him wrapped in family love!
