    Dear Anita, I was saddened to hear of the passing of your dear sister Sheila. I grew up with the Shore family and that was a good time of my life growing up in the North End.
    I hope Sheila will Rest In Peace as she joins her late husband Al.
    May her memories be a blessing to you and her family.
