    • Just absolutely adored this wonderful lady! Her hugs and positive, tell it like it is, no non-sense spunky attitude is her trademark! She helped me see life from a place of freedom! We loved talking about our faith in Jesus over a cup of coffee that she’d never let me pay for and how wonderful God is. I am happy to know she is at peace and I will wait patiently until I can see her again! She doted on my kids like a Gramma and just last week Madelyn made Sheena’s AWESOME pudding enhanced chocolate chip cookies and Jared I am sure found his love of coffee through Sheena’s hostess with mostest spirit. We will miss you, Sheena. Love you! Big hugs~ Jerry, Jon, Katie and Billy
