Oh Mr. Irwin, I was so happy to see you back in August and sorry to miss Miss Shirley at the same time. I am glad that I got to give you a hug and a kiss that day. I don't even know what to say. You always had a smile for me when I came over to play and you and Miss Shirley set a wonderful example for me growing up. I love you with all my heart. Death is not the end, and you will see your loved ones again.
