I loved Shirley. I visited her about every week at Ocean Trail and brought her the State Port Pilot every week. She said that she read it from cover to cover. She was a member of our choir, and I enjoyed singing with her and hearing her beautiful solos. What a smart, accomplished woman she was and so dedicated to her family and church family. I had no idea that she had contributed in so many ways with the Red Cross, for example. I miss her but am rejoicing with her homegoing.
