    Shirley was the perfect example of a wife, mother and grandmother. I was blessed by witnessing and experiencing the love she showered over her family daily. She made sure every family gathering was full of food and a feeling of inclusion and love. (When Dick was alive there were plenty of gatherings, he loved to be around family and friends) Shirley always made it look easy to have enough of everything to share with all. Shirley’s love and dedication to her family was amazing. She never stopped caring for and taking care of her children and grandchildren. I am eternally grateful to and for you Shirley . You are the reason I have the people I love most in this world., my children and grandchildren. My heart is comforted because I know your are in the arms of your life long love . All angels belong with God and you were an angel on earth , the lord has ushered you home.
    I love you Shirley thank you for all of the best people in my life.
    Love Pam
    Kenny , Kim and Kevin I am sending so much love .
