Hope you have a great day, David. It's beautiful outside but only 27 this morning.
Each day from now on is really a gift...that's why it is called the present. The past is gone
and we don't know the future. Stay safe. Good memories from Lowman Hill to THS.

It is with a heavy heart that I write that Sylvia Swogger Sheldon passed away quietly December 19, 2015, in Coral Gables, Florida.  She was surrounded by her loving family and is now with her Lord.

She was my friend in Boswell and my best friend at THS - and my maid of honor.  Our last really fun meeting was the KSU/Miami football game in Miami.  She treated me royally for several days.  The next time she came to Topeka for a board meeting she was accompanied by her son and we knew that she was failing.  Still, we're never ready to say a final goodbye here on earth.  Heaven is getting sweeter every day.
