T0 Shirley's Family; I grew up with Shirley in Petros Tn. I played the piano for her sister's funeral. I've never forgotten her as you don't forget people like Shirley. We were in church together for years. Such a sweet and kind person. Well, this is not the end for Shirley, I'll see her in Heaven and we'll get caught up on all our memories.

Billy, I considered myself to be a friend of Shirley's over the years and am sorry to learn of her passing. I remember having you in one of my classes at Bethlehem Baptist Church many years ago. I talked to your mom about you many times and she was always happy to share information about you. I know this is a great loss for you and your dad. My thoughts and prayers are with you now and in the days ahead.

George and Billy, we offer our sympathy in the passing of Ms. Shirley and want you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Many here at Bethlehem Baptist are saddened to learn of her passing and will miss her kind words and sweet smile. She was a good woman and that you know better than anyone. We are praying that God will bring you comfort, strength and peace during your time of great sorrow.
