Shirley has been such a beautiful lady for as long as I've known her. She was always a treat to see at family gatherings. I hate that we have to experience such grief on this side of heaven. I long for the day when we can truly say...O Death, where is thy sting?! My prayers are with your family.

Love, Sarah (Gil's daughter)

If there’s one thing I know about Aunt Shirley it’s that she LOVED her boys!!! Jim, David, and Donnie!!! I am praying for you during this time. Shirley had the most radiant smile and glow about her. She was always the happiest with her guys around her. The way she spoke about each of you exuded love and family. She will be so missed and never forgotten. We will see her again!!
