Shirley will be greatly missed! I knew her for 20 years. She and I developed a real friendship. She was always kind and had the happiest laugh that would make you smile. I met her while working with her in the kitchen at the old VRE. Shirley and I shared so many special moments I will miss talking to her. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time! God is still good and Shirley is free from all hurt and pain!
