Auntie will be missed by so many. She was such a loving, caring soul. I remember so many things about Auntie but one above others is the time she made a pot of delicious sauce with meatballs and sausage for Mike. When she handed it to him she said 'thank you for taking care of my sister'. Her heart overflowed with love. May God cradle her and all of her family during this time. Love and prayers of peace, Nancy Morris

Dear Sharon,
So many beautiful memories recalled after seeing the photos posted by Keith.
My mom dearly loved you, and your family, as I did. So many, many years of connecting at the family get togethers, and at the family homes. Those were the days! I’ll always think of Shirley as a beautiful, kind lady with a ready smile.
My sincere, heartfelt sympathy, love and hugs, to you Sharon, and your entire family.
Nancy
