Shirey was always such a gracious person, and one of my favorite people. I have not seen her for longer than I care to admit but she has been on my mind a lot lately. I'm sorry that I didn't get by to see her but I have good memories of her and the way she loved her family. Steve, Wee, and the rest of the family I hope that the sweet memories of Shirley will ease you through the loss of this lovely person you had in your lives for so long. Shirley was the kind of person that got more lovely the older she got. Thinking of you all and praying for your peace in the days to come.
