We spent more than 50 years raising our families together, keeping each other sane as we shared our worries and our joys. I thank God for your friendship. Love to all, Pat.

I didn't know Shirley very well as she lived in MO most of her married life. But liked her and thought she was very nice. My sympathies to her family and especially her Bloomington family as I know most of them quite well. She is now no longer suffering from pain and is with our LORD and SAVIOR, AMEN. RIP, Shirley.

I will never figure out how you won the majority of card games we played, feel like you had a hidden deck somewhere. Thank you for always being in good fighting spirits. Love you grandma.
