  1. Dear Daughters and Families, I was so sorry to hear of Shirleys passing. I attended the Biltmore Church of God.with her, and she and my Sister Pat were together all of the time. I have so many fond memories of the two of them together. Please know that my prayers will be with you, in the days to come.
