    Shirley was a dear and close friend to me. I will miss her morning calls, just to say hello and see how I was. We laughed, we prayed and cried together. We taught each other lifelong lessons about our health and finances. When I used to clean for her, we would eat and talk and laugh alot! Some of our conversations were hilarious! Shirley would come and pick me up and we would go riding together. Shirley would reminisce about our past lives and laugh. We would go to Burger King and eat whoppers and ice cream cones. We went swimming on Fridays and had wonderful snacks, devotions and lots of girl talk! We solved the problems of the world at that pool! Shirley was a wonderful friend to me and I miss her so much. She is not in pain any more and in heaven with Jesus and is and will deeply be missed…

    Shirley was one of the sweetest ladies I had the honor of being friends with! She loved her family with everything she had! She was a woman of God and prayed for her family and friends constantly! She always made it a habit to call me just to tell me she loved me and was thinking about me. When I went to clean her house we would talk and laugh and just have a good time! I miss her so much and I will never forget her!
