We were and are privileged to know John and Shirley here at Oakcrest Village Retirement Community for one year. They kept us from getting lost on numerous occasions when we arrived. They were kind enough to invite us to dinner on several occasions. These occasions gave us a chance to know and love them.

Shirley always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. She was one of the helpers we see in the world, and I was honored to know her, if only for a short while. May she live on in the hearts of those who loved and knew her.
