As I wonder down memory lane, thinking of Aunt Shirley an image, sharp and clear, of a long line of small white envelopes appear. These envelopes with my name and various addresses written in Aunt Shirley hand writing or typed on a manual type writer, contained letters “dictated” by Uncle Jerry. I know these letters were hand written or typed, edited for language, and polished grammatically by Aunt Shirley. No matter where I was stationed, stateside or overseas, sooner or later one of these letters would appear. It seem almost magical at times! Thanks to her efforts these letters along with phone calls and care packages followed me and later my family throughout my military career. They brightened many a day for us and always made us smile. Juanita and I offer our heart felt condolences to Brigetti, Robin, and the rest of Aunt Shirley’s family. You’ll be in our thoughts and prayers as you go through this time of sorrow.

Aunt Shirley & Uncle Jerry used to come visit us when Mom & Dad were still with us and we were all young. Those Sunday fried rabbit dinners with them remain special memories from my childhood. Charlene & I offer our condolences & will pray for you all and for the repose of the souls of aunt Shirley & Uncle Jerry.

One time after my Mom passed away. We were in Fort Wayne, shopping and I decided to stop in and visit Aunt Shirley. I wasn't walking very well so I sent my daughters up to the house to see if she was home. They said they wouldn't know her because they didn't remember her. I said that they would recognise her. When they got to door and she looked out and yes they knew who she was. . Though she was blond and my Mom had had red hair she looked enough like Mom for the girls knew she was related. We had a nice visit.
