How sad I was to learn of Shirley's death. We've known each other since childhood. We spent lots of time together at her Grandmother Cook's house. Her brother Jerry was the best friend of me and my brother (Keith). May your faith sustain you in these difficult days. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

So sorry for your loss, Mrs Shirley was a dear lady that I will miss dearly. Even though I only have known her for a short while during her illness she touched my heart and I will forever miss our little talks we had. She will be forever in my heart.
