I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Shirley's passing. I will always remember her fondly as my mom's older sister who loved to come to Cincinnati and talk all night with my mom. I will also always remember when we came to visit the family back in the early 1970's when you lived in Tulsa. We came with Granny via Greyhound bus! It was a long trip out and back and lots of fun in between, riding super slides and riding flattened cardboard boxes down the grassy side of some highway overpass hills. Aunt Shirley always made us laugh and she loved our mom and that made her a wonderful Aunt. I am sorry for your loss. I know how hard it is to lose your mother. All of you, Mike, Sandy, and Paula, as well as Uncle Harold, are in my thoughts and prayers. Warmly, Tracey

Please know Greg and I will be praying and contacting friends in ministry to send to Russia Bibles in her name! We will be praying for the coming days. Love y'all!
Gayle Lang, March 12, 2019 A sweet soul ... hugs to y’all... a new angel in Heaven. She will be quilting in Heaven now.
