May you find comfort in knowing that Shirley is safe in the memory on Jehovah God, who will remember every detail about her and bring her back again. Revelation 21:4 "He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."

The Family of Ms.. Shirley,
Ms.. Shirley was a wonderful woman who touched many lives. I will never forget how sweet she was to my family when my Dad was in the hospital.
May the Lord wrap each of you in his loving arms and carry you through the difficult days ahead.

Keith,Donnie,& family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Your loved one was a very sweet lady,and every time I saw her we talked, and we did just that not long ago when I saw her in Walmart. She told me that her cancer had come back, but she said that she was not worrying about it, because God would take care of her, and that he did. She has no more cancer and no more pain. What a blessing that is. God surely gained an angel. My prayer for you is that God will wrap His arms around you and comfort you and give you peace. Be blessed...
