What an amazing person Shirley was and how I always respected and loved her…..Her smile and sincere caring are hard to find and our boys loved her with all their hearts. Mitch said tonight I loved her Mom and she loved me and to watch those two together they did. He watched every day for her to go to the mailbox and would rush down the drive to wave and she always waved back……to all of her family you were truly blessed. Heaven gained a beautiful angel and RIP Shirley, we will miss you.
Dick and Lorna and boys.
