Shirley, I truly enjoyed working with you. You were one of my favorite people! You were a challenge to keep on task as you loved to chit chat, but I also liked our chats. You were a very kind and thoughtful person. I'm glad I had the opportunity to help you work through living your life with vision loss. I also appreciate the wonderful items and equipment you donated that will be given to others with vision loss who cannot afford these items. They will be forever grateful. Rest peacefully!

Mrs. M was a warm hearted woman, who loved her family. She was there when I needed her and she taught her kiddos to be just as giving and loving. I am glad I was able to know her and I am looking forward to seeing her in heaven one day. Love to her family, you are in my prayers.

I am so sad to find out Shirley has left this world. I know she is dancing a jig and happy where she is now. I met Shirley first at Price Chopper many years ago. Then I was happy to drive her all over town when I worked for the cab company. I know she will be missed. We both had a common love for our cats. I still have the black cat statue she gave me a long time ago. RIP Shirley and I will see you again!
