Sheri and Family,
You all have been in my thoughts and prayers every since I heard that Susan had passed. When I heard about Shirley I was really saddened. I will always remember Shirley for the help she gave me while I was doing my training right after being hired at the Post Office. Sheri .all I can say is lean on The Lord. I know that He can and will continue to strengthen you. I will continue to keep you in my prayers

I am just hearing of Shirley's passing. I know she will be missed by many. She brought such happiness to everyone that knew her. Her smile was always warm and inviting. All of her kids have that same smile and I'm sure that smile will live on through them and even through her grandchildren. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and I hope they know how much people care about them.

I only met "Aunt Shirley" once with my dear friend Nancy Dudowski, but she was one of the funniest, most kind-hearted people I have every met. She made me feel welcomed and at home and was a joy to be around. I hope she will rest in peace and enjoy her babies once again.

So saddened to hear of Shirley's passing. I worked briefly with her years ago & she was such a sweet & caring person. It is so sad the loss this family has gone thru & even though her departure on this earth is leaving so many with broken hearts there is such an emotional and happy reunion for Shirley and her children that have gone on to Heaven before her, for that was one thing that I got from her was how important her family was to her and from working with so many of her children family was a very very important part of all of them & they all spoke so highly of both of their parents. May God comfort all of you in these very difficult times that you are going thru for I know the past couple of months have not been easy. Your family will always be in my prayers.

Aunt Shirley could always make me laugh until I peed. She was so easy to be around and knew how to love unconditionally. She had such a comforting presence. She touched my life in a way that when I think about her I can't help but smile. I love you and I will miss you!
