My sincere condolences to family and friends. Prayers are with you all. "Aunt Shirley" was always so kind to me and my children. We had the pleasure of enjoying Thanksgiving dinner in my home with her. Aunt Shirley's smile could definitely brighten any room. To know her was to love her and she will be greatly missed by all. She recently gave me a blanket she made to always remember her. Aunt Shirley, I could never forget you and I will always cherish my blanket.
Love always,
Debbie Meginley Lintz
