I am so sorry to hear about Shirley she had been on my heart the last two weeks.
We were friends, when we were teenagers, and hung out in the summer when I came to Rapids from California for vacation. She was always ready for fun and mad such an infectious smile.
My grandchildren and I enjoyed our last visit with her several years ago we talked about all the silly things we did as teenagers.
Chester you will be in my prayers I know how hard it is to lose a spouse.
I pray you and the family feel the presence of God during this time.

Mike Kedrowski, my husband Vince and I wish to extend our condolences to you. It has actually been many years since I saw your mom; since you and I worked together at the Daily Tribune actually!! But I remember her coming in to visit and she had such a beautiful, FUN, and loving personality to share with EVERYONE there when she came to see you, that as soon as I saw this notice I recalled her immediately even all these years later. She truly touched lives and left a lasting and wonderful impression wherever she went. May your memories carry you all your days and keep you with that beautiful smile and spirit she had. Sending prayers to you and your family. ~Respectfully.
