hello to all the people who has ever met to love my dearest mother sheila. I am first writing to thank you all for your prayers and kind words in her memory. Most of all I must say that i am honored to find that so many people cared for my mother in their own ways. my mother has been gone 2 weeks now and even thou i still find myself looking for her and at times even waiting on her to come walking over i have to remind myself she is no longer the feet that i will ever here approaching me, but somehow i have a over whelming comfort in knowing it is she that is far better than any of us left to read such simple words that i write. as she looks upon us i know it is with one of her sweetest smiles. the kindness that she spread to so many lead us to a visitation that took almost 3 hours instead of the 2 we was limited to and after counting the names of her visitors there was over 300 people. just to let you know the true amount of those will never be known because her guest book was full and their was about 50 people who did not get the chance to sign till more pages was brought. it is absolutly amazing at all the people who came to the house,visitation and funeral. i always knew my mother was a very special woman thru a childs eye but to get the chance to step outside of the childs eye and to see her as others did was truly a reality check of how it does make a huge difference in peoples lives when you just take the time to just stop and listen to someone or reconize how another feels how just one kind word to someone can mean so much to them. have you ever thought how many times we have been given the chance to just be nice and when we do maybe we was the only one that had been nice to that person all day. my mother showed me the power of kindness in her death and if i get nothing else out of this i know the last thing she has taught me has been the very most important."kindness" so many have said i as her daughter that i am so much like her but really i have such a long way to go to reach anywhere close to her. all i can say is in my life i have always had the best mother and spent tons of time with this woman i called my best friend and mom and even still it just wasnt enough. we lived it up and enjoyed some of the stupidest things togeather our since of humor was very much the same and that i will miss. if i had one wish i wouldve called her just one more time or poped in on her just one more time or met her at 3:30 in the parking lot at her work just one more time i wouldve just done anything with her just one more time. take this from me one day, just one more time is no more... i got to shop for her just one more time and it was in the place i never wouldve thought because our parents are invincible to us. please don't waste time with the people you love because one day you may wake up exspecting everything will be ok then mom just don't show up for easter lunch. i wanted to take the time thank you all for everything and if i could continue to spread one thing i have learned in these days is to be kind to others and always, always tell the ones you love how you love them everytime you think of them. one day they maybe gone... thank you all again from all of us and im sure mom would thank you all too! sincerily amber

Dearest Amber and Justin, My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. I will always remember your mom with a smile on her face everytime I saw her. She would come in TimeSaver and we would share a laugh or a good recipe. When my son Alex and Amber were in school together Sheila and I would swap stories of all the things our kids were doing in school. I really enjoyed her friendship and will miss her. Just know that she is with our Heavenly Father and she waits for us to join her one day. If you need anything let me know. Love and Prayers Stacy and Sandy Buckner Alex and Amy Allman
