Shirley, You were the funniest aunt I ever had and we always enjoyed ribbing each other and laughing so much. We always were relentless to each other and always have so much fun. I don't think many people will ever have as much fun with others as we did. I will always hold you close and dear in my heart for ever.May all the angels in heaven always be with you as my thoughts will. Miss you Aunt Shirley

Shirley was a faithful companion at Easter Sunrise Service and even in the frigid weather. She would walk out to the field at the crack of dawn. Then hours of Skip-Bo with Jean. You will live on in my memory until we meet again. Jim Grant
