My thoughts and prayers are with all of the Family! Shirley wil be deeply missed, I had such a wonderful time working with Shirley at Mike Raisor. I remember one of the times when she worked on the phones at Raisors and at that point she paged for a sales person to pick up a sales call and no one did, so at that point Shirley paiged again but louder and said I need anyone to pick up the sales call. Shirley you touched alot of lives specially mine!!

Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Our hearts and prayers go out to you and your family at this time. Shirley has been a true neighbor and special friend to my parents and my family. Whenever someone in the neighborhood was feeling low Shirley always had the gift to give them hope and boost their spirits. Even though we were not related she always treated my daughters like they were her own when we would come to visit. They would always ask to go see Shirley. She was a ""special friend to our family"". Please accept our condolences.

Dennis, Dawn, Kaycie, & Kelsey Farner

Girls...and you will always be ""the girls"" to me.....

Your mother was so kind and helpful to me when I joined the O.M. Foxworthy staff in 1978. In those days many of the men in the office had little to do with a woman sales person, but your mom was so special. She made me feel at home and she looked out for me.

Please know that I will be thinking about you. I know these times are hard but with wonderful family and friends around you it will get easier.

My kind thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Shirley,

You were a great person and neighbor. You were the first neighbor to come over and welcome us to the neighborhood. That really meant a lot to us and you did make us feel welcomed. We will keep that back light on in your memory as well as your husband&s. We are going to miss you but we will keep the light on for you.

Sincerely,

Ivan, Rozlyn, Ivan, Jr., Jackson, & Mia Hernandez

Dearest Denise, Cindy, and Carmen,

I am so very sorry for your loss of your mother Shirley.

I remember her best at my wedding getting down dancing and having a terrific time.

Her favorite phrase I&ll always remember. ""I feel a fit coming on I feel a fit""

Here is a poem by Helen Steiner Rice that I love. I hope these words help ease your sorrow and pain.

Nothing Is Lost Forever

The walking earth at Springtime
Reminds us it is true
That nothing ever really dies
That is not born anew....
So trust in GOD&S all-wise wisdom
And doubt the Father never,
For in His heavenly Kingdom
There is nothing lost forever!!!

With much sorrow and saddness,

Terri Ann
