Shirley was my cousin,but she was so much more then that.She was my idol,my mentor & my teacher.Growing up with cousins near by was special,there home & Family was where we spent Christmases & New years.Shirley was 7 years older than me.She took me to Disney movies Snow White & Bambi,me about 5 or 6,she around 12 or 13……….not all cousins have time for little cousins at that age.Later she was my role model for learning to be a Mother ,the one I turned to with questions & worries.Shirley was the one I left my Babies with 1st, the one person I always knew they would be safe with.She was the single most caring & patient person with the best laugh of anyone in my life.Shirley taught me to be a wife ,a Mother & a Friend…..and a killer Scrabble player………….Many will have a empty place in their hearts…………..Good-by our Angel……………

From: Lynn
Relation: Sister

“If roses grow in Heaven, Lord pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my Sister’s arms & tell her they’re from me.
Tell her I love & miss her, & when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek, & hold her for a while.
Sadly missed along life’s way, quietly missed everyday.
No longer in my life to share, but in my heart – she’s always there.”
