I planned to come today for visitation and weather looked iffy. I am 88 and don't drive unless very nice out. I had a picture of our Child Study Club aka now Friends in Focus. I used to pick up Shirley to go to meetings when she wasn't driving any more. I lived in Webberville then. When Shirley moved, I asked Ilene Sheridan who lived in same complex if she knew where Shirley moved to & she said her neighbor said she went to a nursing home. But never got in touch again. I knew she was having problems. But, we missed Shirley at our meetings and we're sorry she died without knowing we missed her. Just rambling, but prayers and sympathy to her family. Our group is getting smaller all the while. Take care and love from Families in Focus Child Study Club, even when our kids are in their 60's. Love from Cora Oesterle.
