    My deepest sympathy to Hope, Tris and Paul. Shirley was a drear friend and I will miss her very much. I have her last voice mail still on my phone, we had talked just a couple days before she died. we were talking about how we wish this Covid 19 would be over so that we could have lunch together and catch up. Shirley was a beautiful person inside and out. I know she is with our Lord celebrating and waiting for her family and good friends to join her one day.. Shirley I Love You and Miss you . RIP until we meet again .

    Don’t walk in front of me. I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, i may not lead. Walk beside me, and just be my friend. ~Camus (a quote found while moving our mother’s below out of American House in Wildwood, Fl.

    Miss Shirley was such a wonderful friend to my mother Iris Anderson. I remember seeing her as a customer in Publix many many times. She was always hopeful and encouraging. A strong Godly woman.
