I've known Shirley when I was young. I believe her younger sister was a good friend to my sister. Shirley always greeted me with her warm smile and hello. May she Rest In Peace.

I have fond memories of Shirley from my childhood. Especially, how she always took the time to make sure us kids had a loving place around her kitchen table, and of course a treat or two. Every trip to the park or swimming pool always included a stop by Shirley's. Please accept my sincere condolences.
