Shirley was a lovely lady and great woman of God. I didn’t get to run around too much with Shirley because Donald took her away from our little group. I loved seeing them together and witness their love for each other. She will be missed by all her family, but she is at peace and whole with her Lord. RIP Shirley and we will all be together again soon.
