Paul, Dave, Brian, Karin, Nicholas, Ryan and the Hamilton family -
Heartfelt condolences to each and every one of you.
Shirley was a ‘first class’ lady. Her kindness was unremarkable .... always a smile and incredible generosity.
My family and I have the greatest fond memories of our times together (whether here at home or on our travels to Disney), for which we will always be grateful and treasure forever. She will be so deeply missed.
Sending comfort, peace and love,
Debbie, Dale and Amanda

Like my brother, Craig, I too spent a lot of time at the Gillan household and was always treated like one of the family enjoying wonderful meals and lots of laughter. Offering words of comfort and remembrance at this difficult time. Rhonda
