Tammy and Family,
I am so sorry to hear about Shirley. I so loved to have her come visit the flower shop. She brought cheer with her and was such a hoot, telling the best stories, having great laughs with us, leaving us smiling and brightening our day. My last delivery to her at Christmas was very special, from her long time friend, and we shared a moment I will never forget. I will miss her dearly.

What a wonderful and delightful person we have lost! But oh, the memories. Shirley brought such fun to everything she did and somehow, a school building was just happier when she was in it. Her laugh, her teasing, her love of children and family, her energy, and her wisdom - we should all have the special touch that Shirley did. She made the most of every day and she is missed.
