What a dear sweet lady Shirley was. I will always think of her when I wear the beautiful scarf she crocheted for me. Our sincerest sympathy to Bob, her beloved husband.

We all adored Shirley - she was such a dear friend to our family for so many years. We all are so very lucky to have had her as part of our life. The luckiest of all of us, though, is you Bob - you are a very blessed man to have had such a love and friendship! She will forever be in our hearts and memory…thru the stories of her life growing up, the stitches of the clothing she helped to make, the crafts she shared with my girls, the material she gave Austie…the fabulous food…AND especially her famous Irish Creme that my friends ask me to make every Christmas! She is loved. She is finally at peace. She is a blessed child of God finally at eternal rest with our Lord and Savior. I will play the Easter hymns this year a little sweeter in her memory as she sings with the Angels!
Love to you, Bob…as always - Dave & Laurann Taylor and family.
