So often in life during difficult or sad times I say nothing, not knowing what to say. I want to let all of the White Family and my Mom (my Aunt Shirley's sister, Millie Ebenhoe- known as Aunt Mickey to the White family)... Know that my heart hurts for your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. Michele Stout

I am so glad not only was I able to drive my mother (Millie Ebenhoe) to Michigan two summers ago to see her sister, but I am also glad I got to see my Aunt Shirley and my cousins as well. In today's times, as miles tend to separate families through distance, we often don't get to see family as often as we would like or should. The older I get the more I realize "sometimes a little too late" that family should always come first in life and it is often hard to make up for lost time together that we can never get back again. I will miss you Aunt Shirley. I wish I would have made more time over the years to enjoy with you the things in life that you loved...

Dear Michigan family, I will miss my sister's chats on the phone. When we talked with each other on birthdays and holidays. When we talked about seeing our first robin in the springtime & watching all the different birds that came to our feeders. We talked about our perennial flowers that were blooming. Shirley would share with me when she saw deer in her yard, driveway or in the field across the road. Even I could share, when on occasion, I would see deer in my backyard. It was fun teaching Shirley & my nieces how to play canasta again....Miles may have separated us, but not our love for each other.

Losing your mom is a hard time to go through. My memories of Aunt Shirley were of her laughter and heartwarming smile. My condolences to Alice, Lois, and Molly. Thoughts and prayers go out to you and Aunt Shirley's grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
