To the family of Shirley Younts my deepest condolences, my hearts is with you all. I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Shirley personally, but I know her family Chad&Amber Dittmon a very passionate couple so I know she was a very wonderful kind hearted person. May the family have peace in knowing she’s now in the full presence of God among the beauty of heaven. My prayers are with you all.

I haven't seen Shirley since high school (in the '60s), but my memory of her is that she was NOT quiet and shy, and was usually smiling and boisterous and seemed happy. That being the case, I'm sure she'll be missed deeply by those she was close to. Someone mentioned that she worked for SWA in Houston... I flew into and out of Houston a couple hundred times from the early '70s through about 2010... surely I didn't cross paths with her or I would have recognized her, based on personality and voice alone. So sad to see the passing of someone that young. To Lois and all the family... a prayer for peace and comfort

God's heavenly canopy has become a little brighter. Shirley was a bright and sparkling star on earth. She brightened the lives of the people she touched here on earth and now she helps God brighten the heavens. It has been many years since I had been with her, but her excitement for life has never been forgotten. Bless you Shirley. Lois, I am with you in prayer.

Dear Elaine,
I will miss your sweet mother with all my heart. We could talk for an hour on the phone. There is no one I even care to speak with for an hour...but she and I could laugh together. As Flight Attendants in Houston...we would laugh and talk about you and my son Austin. Oh how I miss her. How very much I shall miss her. Your mother loved you Elaine. And always will.
Respectfully
Kristen Byrd
