  1. Shirley was such a dear friend to me and my family. From the days at "Wordy Records" to raising our kids together and beyond, I could always count on her to be there. I will miss her greatly. She was really one of a kind.

  2. Mike & Lori,

    I’m very sorry to hear about your loss. I have a lot of fond memories of when Mike & I were young and hung out together after school. Both of your parents were always very kind to me and will be missed and remembered for a long time.

    My deepest sympathy.


  3. Mama,
    I know you’re in a place that’s far better now, but you’ve left such a chasm in my heart & soul,it’s unbelievable.

    Every day,I wake up feeling the need to go check on you,then reality floods in and washes away what I wish could be,and I’m faced with the blackhole of emptiness your loss has left EVERYONE with.
    Love you,and will cherish memories of you forever!

    Our dearest Aunt Shirley – who will be missed by her family here, but we find comfort in knowing that she is with her family again in heaven. Our deepest sympathies are extended to Mike and his family during this difficult time.

  6. Lori & Mike,
    So sorry for your loss, it’s very hard. Lori, I know Shirley will appreciate what good care you took of her in her last days. You are so strong. You did a great job for her. Ellie thought of Shirley as her second Grandmother. She was always so sweet to Ellie.

  7. Thank you, Aunt Shirley, for all the help and support you gave my mother when my father was in the hospital.

    You will be missed.

  8. Rest in peace grandma Shirley.
