  • I am so Sorry Rick . If there is anything I can do Bud let me know . I was stunned when I read this . But 1 thing is for sure . You take the boy out of Howard . But you never take Howard out of the boy . God Bless You My Friend

  • So sorry for heartache you are going thru. However we both know she is in better place and you have our prayers and condolences.

  • To Rick and family. We are never defined by our greatest achievements … because most times they are never known ..But sometimes our greatest acheivement is how we are remembered. I will always remember Shirley as one who would be there for someone when times were dark and a family needed an old friend from the past to show up outta nowhere (Howard is wonderful place) and be there when there became a vacancy. She is with the Lord now … Not a bad place to be. I look forward to seeing her again when the Lord arranges the reunion in the future. She was a good gal.
