I will always have a spot in my heart for Shirley. She I and I worked so closely together my first few years as a manager -- she helped me to be who I am today. I know she is missed by family and friends.

Thankful to have known Shirley for so many years. She was such a mentor to me in my early work life. She was always calm is situations when I was not -- a great gift God gave to her. Miss you Shirley and Happy Birthday

I can't Believe this has happened. Shirley was an Amazing, Kind, Loving, Caring woman, mother, wife, and friend. She would do anything she could for someone. I always admired the love and dedication she had for her family. You could always see the pride she took in herself, her home, and her family. When she would talk about Kevin or Candy, you could see her eyes lite up, and the love just shined out of her. The closeness her and her family has is something I have always sought after, and admired. You could tell how much she cherished it, also. I can't imagine the loss her family is going through, and I wish it was something I could do to take the pain away, even just a little. Her family are just too good of people to have to be going through this, to have to EVER have experienced a hurt such as this. I pray that God will wrap his arms around them and help guide them through this, to help lessen the pain as much as possible, to help them cope with this loss, because I know it's something they'll never be able to get over. I just don't understand how something like this can happen to such wonderful people. It tears me apart inside. I beg of God to please be with all of Shirley's family, friends, and loved ones. I know she's looking down on all of us, and will be watching over her family, and will never truly leave them in spirit, but we still miss her being here with us. Talking with us, guiding us, giving us advice, laughing with us, and mostly keeping brother in line. This is a loss this community will never get over. Shirley, We Miss You, and Love You Soo Much!! 
Brother, Kevin, Candy.. PLEASE Know that I am praying for ALL of you, and if there is ANYTHING AT ALL that I can do, no matter how big or how small.. PLEASE DON'T HESITATE to Call me!! It would be an Honor to be able to help y'all in ANY way possible. Love Y'all!!
