  • My sincerest condolences, Jeff and Holly. Shirley was always so sweet when I visited. I can just envision her reunion with Rodger. They are together once again.

  • Shirley and Rodger were a blessing to anyone who had the opportunity to meet them. Such kind and honest souls! I’m sure Rodger greeted her with a wisecrack! Loved them both!
