I remember the fun times Shirley enjoyed with her brother Jim at the ELKs Club. I enjoyed listening to both of them sharing their stories. My condolences to the family!! Patti (ELKS bartender in the 90s)

Always Missing You ♡
The moment you left us, my heart was split in two, one side was filled with memories, the other side went with you.
I often lay awake at night when the world is fast asleep, and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheek.
Remembering you is easy. I do it everyday, but missing you is a heartache that never goes away.
I hold you tightly within my heart and there you will remain, you see life has gone on without you, but will never be the same.

Rest easy ladies ♡

I'm at a loss for words on what to say, but my heart is shattered into pieces. You lived 89 amazing years, and you loved every bit of the life you lived. You made my days brighter every day I got to spend with you. We laughed, we cried, you gave some of the best advise 💜 I miss you so much, it hurts. Give Grammy a big hug, I know you two are so happy to be back together.
I'll forever have you with me
