    I met Allen and Sheila at a Parkinson’s exercise class at St. Leo’s. They both are such friendly and welcoming people. Sheila was so gracious and kind. My husband even wrote a poem for her for her birthday one year.
    Rest in peace, Sheila. Allen, may you have peace that she is no longer suffering.
