Shirley always welcomed me into her family when she first met me. We had so many great times when they came to our home for the summers. Her and I went shopping and garage saling together. Or just talking. She always told me that I was the daughter she never had and she was so happy that Greg and I were together! Mom you will be greatly missed. Rest in peace! You will forever be loved!
