We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Shirley. She meant a lot to me. We had so many good times together. I loved her smile along with her infectious laugh; especially hearing her laugh when she and Dad played cards together out in her kitchen as Robin and I hung out in her room or in the living room. I'll never forget you Shirley. I love you.
Please know that all of you are in our thoughts and prayers. I know all of you are hurting but you have lots of great memories that will last you a lifetime. Hugs to all of you.

Love Mickey and Darla
