What do you say as a tribute to one that was so much more than a sister. We talked, we laughed, we shared secrets. She encouraged me to be the best I could be. Lived, loved and laugthed. Bragged on our kids and grandkids. Shared lunch hours on the phone. We shared a pact with Diane,that we would not say good bye but I'll see you in the morning. So I'm the last one left. I love you, Shirley ,

A beautiful tribute to a lady that raised great children and lived life with passion.
I would have considered it an honor to have known her.  Take the blessing of God's peace in knowing she is with the love of her life and God, until you meet again.  Prayers that God will carry you in the following days, months and years as you miss Moma and Nana.  Cherish the memories and hold your family tight.

Shirley always had a twinkle in her eye and a welcoming smile when my mom, Maggi Goller, and I visited. Shirley and Julian shared Faux grandparent status with Maggi for the Howell grandchildren. Shirley, enjoy the ice cream in heaven! Sue- Gray
