    We were so saddened to learn of Shirley’s passing. She always had a smile and a good word for us. We will miss her greatly!
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of your family. We came down to Florida for the winter last week so we can’t be there for Shirley’s funeral.

    Dear Ira , Debbie, George, Steve and all of the rest of the extended family,
    Gretchen and I are so very sorry to hear of the loss of Shirley. It is heartbreaking and sad when one so close passes on, but from what we have been told, she had been suffering for some time. It is a blessing now that her suffering has now come to an end and now the celebration of her life may commence, We know there will be sadness in the days ahead, but take comfort that she is now watching over us all and is a part of the energy that surrounds and protects us every day.
    I will join you all on Thursday and will share hugs and good wishes with you all then. Please accept our deepest and most heartfelt sympathies.
