You made the last six years a special time for me. I will never forget your laugh, sense of humor, and love for everyone. I know your pain and suffering is over and I am happy for that but sad for me because I miss you so much.

Shirley, you watched all of us kids grow up and I had the pleasure of watching you grow old. Now, this time you are in heaven and I will see you and I will get the best hug ever. That's the one thing I am going to miss, is your hugs. I love you and I will remember the song that you sang to me "I ain't gonna worry my mind no more".
