Snooki was my second mom. She was always there for me when I needed someone to tell me to get over and quit crying or be there to hold me and tell me it will be ok. We were so close for 6 years of my life. I was there with you in the hospital and I saw you in pain and I know you are so much better now. It doesn't make you leaving us any easier. I love you momma. I hope you are looking down and taking care of us. Watching little Rosie grow and learn so much! I will forever miss you and love you always. ♡

I am so sorry to hear of Shirley's passing. Shirley, Dolly, Joyce and I were best friends from elementary school through high school. I have many fond memories of the four of us creating chaos together. Many condolences to the family. May God hold you near as He lifts another Angel up to Heaven. God bless.
