Shirley was well known for her graciousness, kindness and support to all who came into her life. Her home was a welcoming place for the many friends and family who came into the family’s life. She left the world a gentler place and will be greatly missed by many generations.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
