Sherry, Pam, & Warren,
I'm so sorry for the loss of your mom. Aunt Shirley was the best Aunt ever. I remember every trip I made to Illinois she always brought Warren out to see me. As adults the last time I was there she took me to see Warren. LoL!! I will forever treasure my memories of her she was such a blessing to me growing up. I felt pretty special that she made a trip to the farm to see me then usually took me back to her house to go swimming. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love and hugs to you too! She's up there walking those streets of Gold with Uncle Del and my Grammy and Grandpa! Xoxo
