Tansy, Kevin and family. Shirley was a great friend and co-worker. I loved her quite smile. I can remember her making Graham crackers with white icing in the middle. She made the world a better place because she was in it.

My Dad, Norris, would always come out to do television repair for your parents and enjoyed visiting with your parents as he did the repair work. So very sorry Tansy and Kevin. During this time may God give you all comfort, peace, strength, and encouragement. May God bless all of you.
