Patsy, Albert & Judd,

I wanted to let you know how sorry I am for your loss. I was fortunate to see Shirley about a month ago in Victoria. Memories of CYO at Our Lady of Sorrows have been on my mind. Sending my prayers to all.

So sorry to hear of Shirley's passing. She was such a good and fun loving person. So proud to have her as a long time friend and my son Erik's Godmother. My thoughts and prayers are with Albert, Judd, All the Family and Friends of Shirley.
