April, and family,

I am shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Sheila.
She was always such a wonderful example of a partner to your Dad, loving mom to you, best grandma ever to Raquelle and lucky Great grandmother to Cade.

Heaven has gained a first class angel.  Her memories will live on though her loving family and friends.

May God hold you all tightly at this difficult time.

I am so sorry to hear about Sheila’s passing. I was the person that purchased all of her wedding decorating inventory! I had that business for 6 years before I sold it.

Cherish your memories and my deepest condolences.

Larry and Family:
We are so sorry to read of Sheila's passing.  The last time we saw you folks was probably at the Cylinder Reunion several years ago.  Time passes much too quickly, but was always so good to say Hello to both of you as the Herke and Jacobsen families were favorites for so many years.  
We hope your many years of good memories now become beautiful treasures.  You have our sincere sympathy, Bill and Marcie

Commissioner Larry Herke and family.
Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of your mother Sheila.  When I see her birth year of 1941, that's the same as my mother-in-law and it's just too young to be leaving all of you behind.  My wife has the same Clothing and Merchandising degree and I am certain that your mother loved fabrics and working in this field.  She lived a very active life and had no regrets.  By her own accomplishments I understand where you received your internal "drive" and moral compass.  

I know that these words bring little comfort to you and your family at this time.  You can be assured that your mothers faith through the Methodist church was strong as ever and she now rests peacefully with her Lord, and will someday be reunited with your father.

Dear Larry and family. I was very sad to hear of the passing of Sheila. She was a very special person and we had alot of good times in the career development center at MSU. I will never forget all the special events she would help plan. Always something good happening with Sheila! She will be missed.

Dear Larry, Larry Joel, April, and Family,
     I am deeply sadden to hear of Sheila's passing.  Ivy spoke of you all very often, which is actually quite an understatement.  She so appreciated her wonderful neighbors who were more than friends than just neighbors to her.  Chuc & I always appreciated you both being so close to Ivy, both emotionally & physically, and taking such good care of her.  You know she appreciated it too.  
     I understand the emptiness you feel inside right now and I'm not going to tell you it wains in time, but somehow it does become more tolerable.  Until the day we see them again, take good care of each other.
