The only lady I ever met who had a spare suitcase just for her shoes. You will be missed but we will all meet again upon that beautiful shore in Heaven. Love you Aunt Shirley.

My heart hurts for all of you. She was a wonderful sister-in-law that I will never forget. I remember the time Tom and her took me to Branson when I came to visit them in Texas, it was perfect. We had lots of fun and lots of laughs.
I remember a lot of conversations that she and I had.
She was a wonderful Mother and wife that thought the sun rose and set with her husband, children and grandchildren.
R.I.P. My dear Shirley.

I have known the Blancet family for many years. We met at church. Our children grew up together in school and church. I have never known Shirley to not have a smile and friendly greeting. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Rick, Terrie, Tom, and family,

Please accept my condolences for your loss. As Rick's friend, Shirley always made me feel welcome in your home. I ran into her occasionally over the years and she always took the time to engage in pleasant conversation with me. I know she had many friends because she was such a friendly and engaging person that seemed to really care about others. I know she will be missed. Much love to you guys....Roland
