I am so saddened by the loss of your Mother. I think back over the years and the happy times we had together. I am hoping to come out on Thursday for the Graveside Memorial.
May she rest in the peace of God and in His safe keeping..
My friendship with the Reece family goes back 45 years to grade school at Woodward School in Hamilton. How she put up with all us is still a mystery today. Despite the many troubles that boys get in to, I personally have never seen her lose control even though we gave her many reasons to. She just went about and did her thing in a sometimes chaotic environment that accompanies a house full of boys and their friends (who were always welcome). Through the teenage years and into our 20's, Warrior get togethers during the holiday season were becoming lengendary at the Reeces with Shirley's cooking being the highlight of the night. Following marriage and kids, I saw less of Shirley but whenever I did see her we chatted and laughed like I had just seen her yesterday.
May she rest in peace.
