  1. Sad for me to hear this news about Shirley. Glad for her since now she is with the Lord. I had the privilege of being Shirley’s pastor for several years and can say without reservation she was always the most kind and sweetest person and had a beautiful smile. Shirley was a very patient person, and helped with church activities where and when she could. I have nothing but fond memories of her, and the world will miss another kind heart, as people such she are growing much fewer and far between. It was a pleasure having known her.
