Shirley was the best father in law anyone could ask for. He was a sweet, gentle and loving man to me and my children and he welcomed me into the family with open arms. He never had an unkind word to say about anyone and would do anything for you. I will always be grateful for knowing him.

I'll never forget how everything was "just super" to Shirley. Love and miss him already.
Barbara Davisson
