Tom and family, sorry for your loss. Shirley will certainly be missed especially by my mom. She was always there to help and to keep watch on my mom which was greatly appreciated. She always had a way of making me laugh when I would see her.
Tom, this is a hard time for you. You will be lonely but you never be alone as Shirley will always be with you.
