Papa & Shirley Twitty were two of the finest people we have ever known. Neighbors for many years, we had such fun socializing and visiting with them. Sadly, I did not get the news about Shirley until today. When I think of what a Christian looks like, acts like, and loves would be Shirley. The Hutchinson family will never forget. We are deeply saddened to hear of your loss.

Love, Linda Hutchinson

Though we did not know Shirley personally, we are dear friends of her granddaughter, Christiana. We want to extend our love to the family and to let them know we are covering them in prayer as they continue to celebrate the beautiful life that Shirley lived on this earth. We celebrate with you, and we know that the peace that passes understanding will be your strength and joy in the days ahead.

She was a woman that exuded the love of Christ everyday. Her smile, her love and compassion for others and her southern grace will be a loss for our family. Until we meet again at our Saviors feet....
