I saw Sheb in April of 2012. I had come to Illinois to see a friend of mine with cancer. When I saw him in the parking lot of Rural King, I hollered, stop the car, I know this guy!!
Of course Sheb knew who I was right away. We hugged and held tight to each other. Just the embrace brought tears from the both of us.
He was such a soft spoken man with a good heart!
He will live on in all who knew him.
I will always be grateful for all the help and love he gave to my mother over the years.
I am so sorry for your loss Twyla, and Len, and all his children and grandchildren.
