Praying for the family and friends. The world mourns for Shirley.

Shirley's vibrant personality will be sorely missed. We all at Port Wentworth Elementary so enjoyed her time with us. My deepest sympathies and prayers go to all her family.

Uncle James and family please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I pray that God give you the peace, comfort and courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
