Deepest Sympathies to you both with the passing of your Mother.
Shirley was a good duck.
But honestly, I don't think she would have survived without her soaps -
:) Goodbye Mrs. A xoxo

I am so sorry April and Bob, that you have lost your mom, and I am sorry to lose my dear Auntie Shirl. I have many fond memories of her from when I was a child, from riding my bike to their Pharmacy apartment, to going to London on the train with her. She will always have a special place in my heart.

Hi Bob. I am so sorry for your loss. You looked a lot like your mom. She looked like a very happy and caring person, which obviously she has passed that character on to you. My prayers and thoughts are with you, Mary and your family.
