Not sure what to say?

Sorry for your loss Keith and Cindy. She was a great mother and woman. She helped take care of all of us.

Many prayers to the family.

Ann Garrett Grissom

Bob and I loved Shirley very much. I played cards with her for many years - always had lots of laughs - lots of food - and it did not matter if we won or lost. She always had a smile and a kind word to say about everyone and everything. She will be missed.

Great friend. Will miss her so much. Had fun playing cards with her.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Keith and Cindy.

Keith Allen and Cindy my prayers are with you at this time of sorrow. My God hold you close and help you get thru this very difficult time. Treasure all the memories you have of your mother and mother-in-law.
She is watching over you with Our Heavenly Father.

Shirley always had the sweetest smile on her face, whenever you saw her. What a special woman who was respected by so many. She became a good friend and an encouraging and gracious mentor to our daughter Ann, when she first married and moved into Shirley's neighborhood, many years ago. They became so very close, with a friendship that lasted forever. Prayers for the family in the loss of this very Godly woman! ----Sylvia and Mike Eden

We Love and miss you aunt Shirley

So sorry for your loss, prayers for the family.
