A Girl With A Beautiful Smile

I met a girl with a beautiful smile
but she left me for a while.
I met her again later in life
and we danced well into the night.
She left me again for a change of life
but she returned with her smile in sight.
We married one beautiful day and later
had children that loved to play.
We loved each other for many years
but her life ended with me in tears.
Even though she is nowhere in sight
I miss her dearly every night.
Perhaps some day we will meet again
and I will see that smile again.
In Memory of Shirley Mura McGlinn

I light this candle as a symbol of your never ending spirit and light. You were such a brilliant, warm and gracious woman. You were a teacher, mentor and friend. And, We shared a deep love and admiration for our Mothers.
You were instrumental in helping me achieve my dream. I am so thankful I had a chance to tell you. I am so thankful to have known you. You are another Angel in heaven. Go shine your light.

I pray sweet blessings to your family. I thank them for sharing her with us.

Thinking of you today Shirley. I don't think any of us realized what how lucky we were to know such a great person like you. If I could go back in time, i would say "Thank You." You shed a beautiful light on my humble soul.

While seeing the sights on Boone Hall Plantation just north of Charleston we had a gentle reminder of who is always around. Every time Judy and I see butterflies Shirley is in our thoughts.

Shirley Mura McGlinn was always growing into the very best most loving person she could be. My contact with her started back at Immaculata High School in Leavenworth, Kansas where she we were both involved in YCS ( Young Christian Students and CYO ( Catholic Youth organization. Someplace I have pictures of YCS study weeks we both attended and the natl. CYO convention in Kansas City. Shirley had a joyful, peaceful heart then and maintained it all of her life. I followed her courageous , graceful struggle with cancer through Larry Gunthers emails. We connected again the fall of 2011 at the Imac reunion. I COULD SEE THE DEEP FAITH AND PEACE THAT SHE HAD WITHIN. Her spirit was still shining bright, her love of life in full bloom. When we are touched by someone they are forever a part of matter the time and distance. She remains forever with us in Spirit... a new special angel in heaven for us all to pray to and thank. The lesson: tell people daily while they are alive how they touch us. Say thank you often, write the note. Spread the joy and gratitude. Celebrate the loving life that Shirley lived.

What a wonderful lady who inspired her classmates at IMAC to "be the best they can be". Everyone loved & respected Shirley...she was an angel and will be terribly missed!! God bless Bob and Shirley's family.

My beautiful and beloved Aunt Shirley was such an amazing woman. With her incredible intellect, energy, and loving nature she changed the lives of her students. She was a genuine human being who always made others feel understood and appreciated. She was brilliant physically as well, with her crystal blue eyes, her radiant smile, and the glowing warmth of her presence. She had a wonderful, easy laugh which I will always remember. Knowing her and observing how she lived her life to the fullest has left an indelible mark on me and indeed changed me for the better. By her example, I have seen what true grace is. I will strive to live as she did and in this way, she will always be with me.

Shirley had such a gentle way about her. I always found that intriguing and angelic. I'm glad I knew her as I think there are few like her.
