Not sure what to say?

Dear Shirley,

I feel such a need to post this as I miss you so much in so many ways, each day. We seemed to laugh at the same things all the time, even during our last conversation together not so long ago. Sometimes it is hard to look at our Christmas pictures as I miss you, but we had so much fun on that day with you here. You made Christmas so special by coming here with your big smile. There are so many times lately that Steve and I would stop and say, "Oh, we need to call...

I can remember the times when we were young and gather at the Relative's house's for the holidays. You alwavs had a smile on your face. As we grew older those days faded away, but the memories never did. I cherish the times our familys gatherd together. You will live on in my heart for ever. God has set you free.

Auntie Evon, Daniel,Barb, Steve & Family my thoughts and prayers are with you.
Love, Carol


I'm sure going to miss your smiling face walking though that door at the clinic. I'll never forget one of our first converstation when you told me I didn't look like a Shannon and you needed a nickname to call me... Moe!! I loved seeing you and enjoyed the conversations we had. I know your in a better place now without any pain, it's just so hard to believe your gone. Your memories will live on!

John, I am so sorry for your loss. Shirley loved you. You...

Cousin Shirley,
You were my first friend. My childhood memories are full of You. In our adult years we didn't keep up, but it matters not. Time is irrelevant when it comes to matters of the heart, for Love is a timeless thing. You live on in my heart, sweet Shirley Whirly, because, you see, Love never dies. The laughter and the tears we shared as children still play in my mind clearly and with distinction to this day. I miss you. Love, Lori

You were always a joy to talk to and i am going to miss you so much. It is just not the same around here. I feel apart of me is missing because we had gotten close throughout your times of being here. I just cried when i saw the words from John that you had past. I couldnt believe it. Im still waiting for you to come strolling on in here with your big smile. You always brighten my day. Now you are a guardian angel and i know you are watching over everyone you love. Shirley,...

To the family,

I am so sorry for your loss. How comforting are the words of God at Isaiah 57:15: “This is what the High and Lofty One, who is residing forever and whose name is holy, has said: ‘In the height and in the holy place is where I reside, also with the one crushed and lowly in spirit.” The crushed one clings to the Father; there is a greater intimacy than ever before. “The nearer you go to God, the nearer he will come to you,” writes James. (James 4:8, JB) James assures...

Evon,Barb and Steve

Its been years since we have touched base Evon. So many years in fact that I wasnt aware of Shirley. But I just wanted you to know when I saw her notice in the paper I wanted to let you know that you are being thought about as well as Barb and Steve. Often thought of past times and the kids playing together. I trust that there will be many happy memories for you to remember and to help ease the pain.

Thinking of you.

I was so sorry to read about the passing of Shirley. We worked together and she was an absolute doll - always smiling and we would share stories about our children. She was a devoted mother who was very proud of her son. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

Steve and Debbie,

Greg and I were saddened to hear about the passing of your sister and sister-in-law. Although we did not know Shirley, we can sympathize with the tremendous loss you must be feeling at this time. Losing a sibling is like losing a part of your very own soul.

I would expect that Shirley was much like you Steve, with a friendly and open personality, sensitive to others needs, non-stop silliness, and just a real pleasure to be around.
