Help Sheila after the loss of her husband, John

Requesting donations and prayers for my sister, Sheila Brussell.  Sheila’s husband, John, suffered a massive stroke on January 3, 2021.  The damage caused by the stroke was extensive and John passed away on January 7th.  Sheila and John have been together for 38 years and his loss has devastated her. 

The past few years have been hard as John suffered multiple heart attacks, quadruple bypass, lyme disease and battled diabetes.  The home they lived in together requires some much-needed repairs, which John was more than capable of doing if his health would have improved.  Sheila dedicated all of her time and energy to helping John recover from each of his illnesses over the years.  There was just no time or extra money to keep the home maintained as all their time and efforts were put toward trying to improve John’s failing health.  Even though family members offered to help him, John always thought he would get better and would be able to make the improvements and repairs on his own.

Many of you may find it hard to believe that Sheila is 74 years old, but she is!  It’s hard to believe because she has such a young spirit.  As most everyone knows, Sheila is a very loving and caring person and she would give her last dime to help someone in need.  Now it’s time to try and help her.  Sheila is truly lost without John but the family is dedicated to helping her through this difficult time.  We will all pool our resources and also give our time to make sure that she is safe and comfortable in the years ahead.

All funds received will be used to improve her current living situation.

We understand that times are hard for everyone, especially with the impacts of the pandemic, so prayers and positive thoughts are appreciated as much as monetary donations.  Also, to help get the word out, you can share the link to your Facebook Timeline.  

Love to all,
