    Aunt Shirley was a wonderful Aunt and one whom each of us enjoyed visiting whenever we could. It seemed she was always "up to something" and her exploits were backed up by that great sense of humor. You could always count on Aunt Shirley for a good laugh whenever it was needed. Throughout her life, there is no doubt that family came first. She loved and cared for each family member in her own very special way. She was definitely one of those incredible people who gave of herself whenever she could. Joy and I are deeply saddened to learn of Aunt Shirley's passing. We are comforted to know she now rests in peace with the Angels. Our most sincere condolences to Jimmy and Janet and their extended families. Thank you for sharing your Mom with me and my family throughout the years. God bless you all!
