    Aunt Shirley always had a twinkle in her eyes, a kind and thoughtful word for everyone, a beautiful voice and a love for life. We will all miss you but know that you are in good company with Viva, Vonda, Wava and all the angels.

    I didn’t know Shirley but know the wonderful man she created, in her son Mike, a reflection on the woman that she was. My thoughts and prayers go out to Shirley’s family members and friends.
