  • Shirley and I go back many many years. we were inseparable during our running around years as teenagers and in high school. We lived just 2 house from each other and had many fun times. I always looked forward to seeing her at our class reunions. She also always saved a seat by her & Bob at the class luncheons. I was very sad to hear the news about her passing & so very surprised. She will be missed so very very much. She was indeed a very special lady.
