To my dearest Aunt Shirley RIP you will be forever in my thoughts you were one of the special people in my life. You welcomed my wife Debbie in your life in such a special way. No one made fudge better than you. My love for you knew no bounds I will miss you now and forever. Wade

Sharon, Tish, Deanna, Doyle, and Ronnie (and the entire family) -- Shirley was such a beautiful person -- inside and out. She treated me so good when I was young -- I could spend hours drinking coffee and talking with her. You kids (and you too Ronnie) were so blessed!! I know I was blessed to just be a friend hanging out at your house. Love and prayers to all of you.
