I loved the talks we had when I came to see you. I could see how much you loved your family, they were your joy. Will miss you my country girl...Keep my seat warm next to yours,love you. MY COUNTRY GIRL Dorothy Whitfield Dorothy (vern) Lavon Whitfield, November 12, 2011 I know Shirley from bingo. I hadnt seen there in sometime and knew she got sick which was a shock since she look so well. I was hoping to one day see her and Don back out at bingo. She always stop by our table to say hello. something about her was so warm and true. I would have loved knowing her better and often thought about stopping by to see her. I was just afraid she wasnt up to alot of company. I will sure miss knowing I wont be about to see her again until I get to heaven. she will love my mama whos already there..god bless her family and friends. sandy Elane kelsey, November 11, 2011 My sweet and beautifl Grandmother with your country accent and beautiful smile. I will miss hearing phrases like "N'them" and "back off yonder" I saved a voicemail you left me, you just wanted to tell me you loved me. I must of listened to it 20 times on Tuesday. This voicemail will always be something I can listen to when things get rough and I need to hear your voice. I will miss joking with you about your opening line to almost every voicemail you would leave for me."Latisha, this is your Gramma...." Of course I knew it was you. We would chuckle about it when I would return your calls. I thank you so much for fighting as long as you did. I am so thankful that Peyton got to spend time with her Great Grandmother. I am so honored to call you my Gramma! Please watch over us and keep us focused on the love you left within us and the love God has for us. I love you and I will miss you so very very much!! Latisha Renee Brewer-Perez, November 10, 2011 Shirley will be remembered as a kind, loving , giving person. Anyone who knew her had the pleasure of being greeted with the warmest smile I've ever known. Shirley, I love you very much and was honored that you called me your daughter. You were more than a mother-in-law, you were my friend. You were an amazing grandmother and Hunter loves you very much. The world will not be the same without your sweet smile and sense of humor. I still owe you that "dollar two ninety eight". I'm glad you are at peace and out of pain. Until we meet again in the presence of our Father. Love always, your other daughter- April April Denise Brewer, November 10, 2011 What can I say about my sister Shirley. Well, she was a funny gal who brightened our lives with her smile and great sense of humor and kindness. She was my rock. I’m thankful for the times we had together, and grateful for the patience, gentleness, and understanding that Shirley showed to me. A sister’s love is special in ways that are unspoken. So, I will miss the security in her love without her expecting anything in return. I will miss our talks together. I will miss the phone calls that always started out “Barbara this is your good old sister Shirley” or the “Birthday songs she sang out of tune over the phone for my birthday that she never forgot. I’ll miss the ways she showed she cared. I’ll miss her forgiving and understanding heart when I was cranky. I will miss our laughter and talks about childhood reflections. I will miss you dear sister. Barbara R Goyen, November 9, 2011 The Lord has truely taken an angel to be with him. My heart aches that I will no longer have the honor of talking with my sweet Aunt, whom I love dearly. But I will always remember her wicked sense of humor when we were together or talking on the phone. My favorites..."How are you feeling Aunt Shirley"? Her response "With my fingers and toes silly". or another favorite..."What are you up to today Aunt Shirley"?...her response "Oh, about 4'10", same as yesterday". She could always make me giggle no matter what was going on in life. I simply loved that about her! She was brave, strong and loveing. I hope I can be a fraction of the person she was.
