My deepest condolences to you and your family during this time. Ms. Shirley was an amazing woman and she will truly be missed. We worked in the same building for years and she always shared pictures of her family especially her grandkids. She and Jay shared many office Christmas dinners with us and they were always enlightening to our group. Rest in Peace Ms. Shirley until we meet again.

I treasure the memories of working across the hall from Shirley in the Canal Building on Railroad Avenue in Plaquemine. All the girls in the whole building enjoyed holidays where we would all gather at a local restaurant. We looked forward to Jay coming along and making us laugh with his jokes he had prepared all year for us. Shirley would share all her pictures of her children and grandchildren with a huge smile! Heaven has gained a beautiful angel! I love her! Until we meet again...
