The Husbands were such special people to me. Met Shirley through a lost book st the library. And that led to Shirley doing a special program on my South Bend family. I got them to join the Jorgenson Y and then many breakfasts at Sarah’s. Just last month I saw Phil at Shirley’s calling. So sad. I will miss them both and Phil will miss his Shirley and his lake.

To the family and friends grieving,
I am truly sorry for the passing of your loved one. Please remember that God is our father and he understands your situation more than anyone. He cares for you and your feelings, that is why he is always ready to bring you comfort and peace through his words. "Our Lord is great and is mighty in power; His understanding is beyond measure" Psalm 147:5

My heart goes out to the family. Phil and I took art classes together. I will always remember his humor. Over the years we tried to keep in touch through emails. He was so dedicated when working on getting Harvester history into our public library. A very nice man. Glad he’s flying with the angels and his beloved Shirley .
