What a truly beautiful life! I only knew Shirley about 5 years but the time we had was truly a blessing to me. Few people can leave a lasting impact as she did and few people show so much love and such a love for life. I will miss my friend and our talks, but I know you are in our father's house, singing and praising! Thank you for sharing your light and life with me.
