    Was this my friend, Shirley Colbert, from first grade at Summerville Elementary? I have tried to find her for years, and we lived so close together! Was her dad the pastor of the First Baptist Church St Summerville?

      Yes, this is that Shirley, she kept wanting to drive around Summersville and see the homestead and sites. She would have loved to find some old friends. Sorry this never happened. Sandy West Whitaker (cousin)

      This is Shirley’s brother, Ken. We lived in Summersville from
      1959-1963. Our dad was the pastor there.

    Thank you. My heart goes out to you in your loss while I also grieve not being able to reconnect with my childhood friend. May God be with you.

    Dear Laura, your Mother was such an amazing woman. I’m so very sorry to hear of her passing. I loved every moment I spent as her piano student. She was always kind, loving and a beautiful picture of Christ’s love. She made such a wonderful impact on my life. I’m praying for you and your family as you grieve her. Thank you for sharing her with my family.

    Was your Father pastor of Hoxie First Baptist? If he was, Shirley was my childhood friend. I loved her so much and have thought of her over the years. I have such fond memories of our friendship.
