We wish to send our condolences to Shirley's family. We met Shirley and Wayne when we bought their home in River Oaks. We thought so highly of both of them. Shirley was a kind and gentle person. She had a love and gift for landscaping, which brought such beauty to those who saw her gardens. We enjoyed seeing her at church when she was able to come. May God's love and peace be with her family.
