    I first met Sheila when she came to visit her cousin in Green Ridge, who happened to live down the street from my Grandmother. Sheila and I became close friends in high school and remained in touch over the years. Her Mom and Dad were special to me. She will always be remembered in memories. My thoughts and prayers go out to Steve and all her family.

    Dear Mr. Triplett, My deepest condolences to you and your family with the passing of your mother.
    Many summers ago I worked at Camp Sacagawea with her and her units overnight, what fun. She always remembered me and was so kind and such a great joy to be in her company.
    May your memories bring you comfort in your times of sorrow.
    Most sincerely,
    Trisch Domingue
