Shirley and I were friends for years as we both served the Lord under the leadership of Pastor Lambert at the Faith Mission Church. We went on many trips together as we traveled to support the ministry. We shopped together and shared the moments together as she began to fall in love with brother Allen , her marriage and the joy of her becoming a mother. My sister Marie rented a property she owned. Shirley and I go far back and enjoyed many years of memories. Years after we left Faith Mission we stayed in touch but as time goes by we didn't visit each other as much but our love for each other and the memories will live forever. I send sincere condolences to her family and friends but we know for sure our Sister in Christ can now receive her reward.💝🙏

We're so grateful to God for our Auntie. She was an angel sent from heaven to show us the importance and power of prayer and having our own personal relationship with God. Whenever we needed her she was always there for us with open arms. Love for her and memories of her will always be in our hearts.

Frederick, Cynthia and Family
