Shirley is one of the dearest friends I have. I have been so blest to know her. I’ve been thinking of many memories but the bests were when we were in choir together. I remember her in her blue striped outfit in the Easter pageant and all the fun we had doing it. I know she is with Jesus and her beloved John. Until we meet again, dear friends and sister.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Shirley was one of the most kindest people we have known. God bless.
Jon, Chris and Wendy,
I’m so sorry to hear about your Mom. I know she is rejoicing in the presence of our Lord.
She was always such an encouraging member of my choir and a great worker in the church. She was also so very talented and always knew exactly what to say.
Know I’m praying for you all.
Love you, Lee
Chris, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. My prayers are with you and your family at this sad time.
