My thoughts and prayers go out to Shirley's Family. She was a very special friend and she will be missed greatly. Shirley would never miss the chance to go to a Double Trouble Show, which was a local group that myself and Mark Heidloff had for many years. She enjoyed the music and we always made sure we played her favorite songs, which were usually Elvis Songs. On the rare occasions she wasn't there it was because she was out having fun with her family which she spoke of often. Shirley was not a stay at home kind of person, if there was fun to be had she wanted to be there and not much kept her from it. Good people are hard to find and good friends are even harder and she was both, she will definitely be a bright star in the heavens shining down on everyone.
