“Sheila was Mom to Rob and I, or Granny to all since Faith Taylor came along and that indeed is who she was - she never met a soul that she didn’t love wholly. She loved football, she loved Kenny Rogers and country music - she loved a lot of things but nothing more than her family - she was fierce about that. Mama and her smile made this world better. We love and miss you. We will see you again.”
