Shirley was my sister in law and I loved her very much. I know she missed Mike but they are together now and I am sure are happy.

Shirley was the 1st friend I made when I moved to rhe Will Roger’s. We shared meals, a love of thrift stores and cats. It is a great pleasure to have her 17 year old cat named Dottie Girl. It’s a part of Shirley.

Shirley and I were inseparable friends. We had some great times together-many, many laughs. She was there for me when my husband died 4 years ago. What a great friend. God Bless Shirley!
