One more gone that I will never hear call me Stevie again. I am starting to get a little jealous at the party that must be happening in the afterlife.

Shirley was such a great lady! I worked with her at WPAFB for years, took smoke breaks together, and became great friends with her granddaughter (Nicole Freeland). May she RIP.
