Dear Aunt Shirley! You made my Dear Uncle Richard very happy on the 28th of October, 2019, when you joined him, my dear parents, Joseph and Audrey, and all of our dear loved ones in heaven! I will miss you very much in the meantime here on Earth, as I have always cherished your innate gift and practice of social welfare for both loved ones and strangers alike. You made a lot of lives happier with your generous spirit and keen sense of social justice! Can't wait to sit down with you all again with a nice hot pizza pie! Until then, I will continue to try to put on my pantyhose standing up (you told me, old age is when you have to sit down)! Love from your niece, Shelley
