Shirley was like a mother to me! I loved her to the moon and back! Our hearts are heavy over the loss of a very beautiful woman who was a beautiful heart and soul, inside and out! I know that she is rejoicing in Heaven with our Lord and Savior & she's singing in the choir with the angels! We love you today, tomorrow & forever! Deeply missed, but never forgotten!
