  1. i have know shirley for some times from shopping at go. i have been shopping there since mr. dave started the place, so i guess that would make me an old timer. she was kind and caring and even if she was down, she would always ask me how i was. she was one of the few folks who knew about some of my own problems and i knew about some of her’s. she was an impressive human being! i am saddened she is gone but blessed that she touched my life. God was good to bless me with knowing the little bit of her i did know. may you find comfort knowing she was a hero to me and others.

  2. Too Roger, Richard, Jason and all of Shirley’s family. I’ve known Shirley for over 3 years and I could not have had any better friend in her or this family….I am so very sorry for your loss…She was Loved and will be missed…She was the dearest friend and lady I have ever had…
