Shirley and I use to laugh all the time about Auburn and Alabama games. I would go over to get AlliB and take Alli and her sister Sadie for a walk. We would get back from our walk and Shirley would be at the top of her steps with Cheerios for the girls. They loved their O’s. Shirley would say are you going to watch the games and I always said yep War Eagle and I would ask her the same thing and she would say Roll Tide. The funny thing is, whenever they played their games she would call me and tell me she was watching the Auburn game and would always say War Eagle and I would always tell her I was watching the Alabama game too and would always say Roll Tide. She use to get the biggest kick out of that. There were so many wonderful memories but this one was special because to hear Shirley say War Eagle, that was huge because everyone that knew Shirley, knew what an avid Alabama fan she was. Love you Shirley. 💗🤗
