So sad to hear of Sheila’s passing. She struggled many years with a multitude of health issues. Her husband Mike took wonderful care of her through a multitude of traumas and continuous setbacks. She was a fighter and went through so much just to get through each day... May G-d be with her family at this time. “Baruch HaShem “.
