Not sure what to say?

Rest in Peace, Aunt Shirley. You lived a great life. And thank you and Uncle Marvin for looking after my father when he's young, and setting him on the right track.

Dear Marv & Family,
I am so sorry for your loss of Shirley. I remember our young days, raising families and I always thought you and Shirley had a close wonderful family and I always enjoyed you both so much. Shirley was not only beautiful, she was loving and so smart.

With Love and Prayers,
Carol Estes

In times of sorrow, when words of comfort are needed most, it seems they are most difficult to say. But may you find comfort in knowing that our thoughts and sympathy are with you. May you find more peace and strength with each passing day.

Dear Marv and decendants, Martha and I are most saddened by the news of Shirley. Our friend. Such love and beauty taken from the world. Marv, as we said when we called you, we regret that we won't be there for Shirley's service, we'll try to make it up to you soon. Love, Martha and Charlie

Dear Marv and all your descendants, We are most saddened by the loss of our Shirley. So much love and beauty taken from the world. We regret our not being able to come to the service tomorrow, but Martha and I are conducting a tribute to U S Veterans that is done every year on the Sunday before the regular Veterans Day. For you to know, Marv, Martha is in charge. Just as Shirley always was.
We'll see you soon, Love, Charlie and Martha

One of the sweetest persons I ever met. Loved her and Marvin and their children. Also one of the most talented person and family ever!

My deepest condolences to Tim and the Carpenter family. I was lucky enough to get to meet and visit with Shirley a few times after Katrina while traveling the Gulf Coast with Tim on business and found the adage "Life isn't about the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain" to be very indicative of her spirit and her outlook on moving forward from the challenges brought by the storm. So sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. Shirley always brightened the corner wherever she was. May loving memories guide you through this difficult time.

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
