My deepest condolences to Terry and all of Shirley’s children and grandchildren. I never had the pleasure of meeting Shirley in person but spoke to her several times on the phone as she was my grandfather Truman’s sister. After growing up in Newport, RI, I lived in Charleston, SC for 9 years and we had planned to meet one day. We had lovely chats about our shared passion for counseling. She was such a sweet and intelligent woman who loved her family so much. Sending all our love!

I want to send my love and sympathy to the Cline Family. I am Truman's daughter Claire. We were fortunate to see Shirley about ten years ago when she visited Newport with her husband and son. I am so glad we got to meet and share some time together.My father always spoke so highly of all his sisters. Take Care
