To all of Shirley's family, our deepest sympathy. We met her and Robert when we moved into Chickering Meadows many years ago. She was always such a friendly neighbor! May you find comfort in the memories of her!

When I was a kid, your mom & dad were two of the classiest people my whole family admired. Your mom was always so caring and loving to the Vaal kids and continued to show an interest in us as we became adults. They were amazingly fun lifelong friends to my parents. Jen and Rob, you were blessed to have them as parents. We send you hugs of comfort and know this is a heartbreaking time. God bless.
All our love,
Dick and Bonnie (Vaal) Stewart
