Who made the best home made pies especially pumpkin? Who will I look at across the room on Friday nights and make faces with and have little private talks and jokes. Shirley had a great laugh and smile and was full of fun. A friendship that didn't have time to grow, you will be missed dear friend. I hope heaven gives you hugs.

Mark,You already know how much Shirley will be missed. She was one of the kindest and fun-loving person that I had the pleasure of knowing for such a short time. God must have a very important auction up there for her to attend. Thank you Mark, for being a part of bringing into our lives. We will never, ever forget her. God be with you in your time of healing.

Michelle, Mark and Logan, I’ll bet you’ve had about enough of people telling you how strong you are and how great you’re doing during this awful, difficult period in your life.
Maybe you’d rather hear someone say how much this sucks: how outrageous and unfair it is.
Maybe you’d rather hear someone tell you that you don’t have to be strong all the time.
Or that it’s definitely okay to curse fate and throw a tantrum or two.
So here I am to tell you all that stuff and more, to let you know where I stand, which is right in your corner.
There’s no right way or wrong way at a time like this.
However you work through this thing is immaterial to me.
All I care about is that you ask for what you need, lean on those who love you, and try to trust me when I say that you’ll come out the other side.

Michelle and Logan...My deepest sympathy pours out to you and your entire family. I welcomed her spirit and smiles all the years at Bingo and enjoyed her at the baseball games as we watched the boys (Logan and Joey) grow up. She was an amazing person, I am proud to have called her a friend. May words of comfort help you heal during this difficult time.
