    I remember visiting the Louallen reunion every year on Christmas day. It was a high point of my life. Shelia and Debbie were always there with beautiful sweet personalities. We laughted together and played games with all the cousins and no arguments were ever displayed that I remember. Debbie and Shelia were always dressed in their Sunday best like the rest of us, but it did not stop us all from a baseball or kickball game. I wish I would have kept intouch better with all the cousins and I regret the years of missed moments of opportunities to know Shelia better. I’m sure Shelia was a joy all her life as she was when I had the childhood opportunity to play and laugh with her.
