Ralph I am so sorry to hear about Shirley. All my best thoughts to you and family. I worked with Shirley for many years. She was one of best nurses I have worked with. She was my hero who someone I looked up to. She was so very kind and a lot of fun. Patients and families loved plus her co-workers. Take care Ralph
