Shirley was not only the “other mother” to my daughter Christy, but a verY dear and close friend. She started keeping Christy at six weeks old and continued until she started day school several years later. I can never repay Shirley, John, and her entire family for the loving and caring we’ve shared all these years. God bless you each and every one because we know Shirley is watching down on us and smiling.
