Terry and Laurie -
I just learned of Shirley's passing and wanted to share a note. What a wonderful neighbor! I have so many memories, but especially remember your mom's laughter coming from the porch and cheering up the neighborhood. Frequently the outdoor hellos turned into a neighborhood party! I also remember her snapdragons which I thought were the coolest flowers I had ever seen and her beautiful snowball bush that no one else could seem to grow. I also remember helping my mom take care of Maudie and my fear that she would run away on our time and that your mom would be devastated.
You are all in our prayers!
Grace and peace
