I remember how sweet and caring Aunt Shirley was. I talked to her over the phone during one of the recent hurricanes. I loved that we were connected on Facebook. I so wanted to take a trip to visit her and Don. She shared not that long ago that she missed her siblings, well beloved Shirley, you are now with them in heaven! You were an angel on Earth you will be missed. My condolences to my cousin's and Don. May God surround you with peace and comfort today and the days to come. Much love. Lori

Shirley was my grandma she was one of the most amazing people I’ve ever known in my life. She loved her family dearly and wanted nothing more than to see them as much as possible. Every holiday for as many years as I can remember we would get the whole family together at her house and celebrate. She had so many family recipes that I truly treasured of hers and nobody will ever be able to make like her maybe she stuck her finger in it lol. She will be greatly missed but I will to continue to carry her with me in my heart.

Love you grandma
I’ll see you again.
