    Shirlee was a sweet kind lady. She will be greatly missed. Loved hearing her laugh and playing games with her. You had to watch her she was known to cheat occasioally. I know your new home is wonderful. Love you forever.

    Grandma you were and always will be a wonderful woman. I am thankful for the time that I spent with you in December and happy that we had the opportunity to visit. I will truly miss you but I know that it was time to go because you were unhappy where you were. I hope that your journey is one that brings you all the happiness that you deserve. I will treasure all the memories that we made together forever. Until we meet again I love you and miss you.
