Aunt Shirley always lit up with a smile when she saw me and always gave the BEST HUGS! She was a sweet lady that came from a large family of 2 sisters and 7 brothers. It is so sad to see these numbers dwindling down but I know you are having a wonderful family reunion up in heaven with all the long tables spread out under the trees with all the country food imaginable. Give my Dad a big hug. Love you and will miss you. Patti, Buddy & George and the entire family my heart and prayers are with you!

Love,
Jeff Norris
