  1. When I think of Aunt Shirley I remember mom saying she attended the Glory Hill Assembly of God church as a girl. She was such a kind person who dearly loved her family. Our cousins Keith, Lynn and Kevin are in our prayers during this time, we love you and are thinking of you.

  2. There is nothing more special than the love between a mother and child. Your mom’s love is evident in her wonderful, kind, generous, and loving sons. Sending hugs and hope you can hold dear all your special memories of your mom at this time. –Kelley Vivian (lucky to have Kevin as a friend)

  3. Aunt Shirley was one of a kind. She loved with her whole heart.
