Shirley, your ears must have been burning in Heaven over the July 4th holiday. The Ashcraft/Huggins families had a reunion in Little Rock, and you were in our many conversations. We all felt your spirit mingling among all those present. Your sweet Beth, her husband Phil and your grandson, Adam, were there. Beth and I had some wonderful talks and your name came up constantly. I felt like a piece of you was there every time I talked to her. We looked at your albums and laughed and reminisced about old times. You must be so proud of all of them. You were certainly missed, sweet cousin. I love you.

Mom.......I don't even have words. I miss you at least as much now as I did a year ago. There is so much I have wanted to show you and tell you and share with you. Why is it that the happy times make me miss you more? When things are hard I guess I feel like you aren't missing out on anything, but being with all the family at the reunion a couple of weeks ago or getting ready to move into a new place makes me miss you so much more.

It has been so hard to put your life into words and that's why I couldn't when this guest book was first open the first month after your death. It's not because I didn't have anything to's that there is so much to say I still don't even know where to start. Just know that you wee an incredible Mom and friend and that I don't know if I'll ever stop wishing that we had had more good, strong, healthy time to share some things we had hoped to.

I have a lot more to say on all this but I wanted to at least break the ice and say something. Also, why am I using these guest books like some kind of email to those in

I love you more than you love me
no backs
no take outs

My heart goes out to Shirley's family. I have many fond memories of Shirley when we worked together at Julies. She was true to her heart and honest almost to a fault. She had the most wonderful laugh and we laughed often. When her daughter or grandson were mentioned, Shirley lit up like a firefly. Shirley had her wings before she entered the Gates of Heaven. God has gained a wonderful angel. Peace be with you Shirley.

Though we have not stayed in close contact through the years, I could always count on Shirley and her big heart to embrace me, her cousin, with love and laughter every time we talked. Her special nurturing of Aunt Elizabeth through the years was an inspiration. I know the sacrifices as I cared for my mom and my mother in law for 10 years before their deaths. We will miss you Shirley. Give my mom a special hug in heaven!??

Aunt Shirley, you are a special, special lady. Starting with your vigil at my birth and through my whole life long, you have been a fun and loving presence in my life. You were so generous to me with your time when I was a child, encouraging to me when I was a young adult and new mother, and loving and entertaining to my children when we would come to visit. You were a sacrificial caretaker for my precious grandmother, and a loyal and true friend to my sweet mama. I cannot celebrate a birthday or a Christmas holiday without thinking of you. Your wonderful legacy and sweet memory will live on in my heart for the rest of my life. I love you.
