Jan, my condolences to you and your family on the death of your mother. I can see your resemblance to her in the picture.

I hope you are doing well. This is a very different world we are living in now, and who knows what tomorrow will bring.

I have my beautiful clock on my beside table! It is special to me.

Let me know if I can do anything for you.

So sad to hear of Mrs. Shirley's passing. My mother & Mrs Shirley played bridge together for many, many years starting at Riverside Country Club and then taking turns between her house and my parents house EVERY Wednesday. Plus, me, my husband, my parents, Mr John and Mrs Shirley played Booray EVERY friday night for many years! I have great wonderful memories of Mrs Shirley that I will treasure forever! She was a beautiful person, inside & out and will be missed by so many! My deepest sympathy goes out to her daughter Jan & family, and especially to Mr. John!!!

So very sad to read of Miss Shirley's passing. She and my mother, Anne Dunn, were great friends and played bridge for many years together. She was a lovely lady. May God comfort her family in their time of grief and may friends give them comfort.
