In high school we sat in alphabetical order so Shirley sat in second chair behind me. I always wanted to be as smart as her. I considered her a good friend in school. We graduated, moving on to further our education. Sad to hear of her death.

This previous lady's determination,generous spirit and great sense of humor were always a great inspiration to me. I am so grateful our journeys crossed. I am a better person for having knowing her! I will greatly miss this sweet lady! Her life will continue to inspire many! I was blessed to be one of her pastors several years ago! My thoughts and prayers are with her family. Rev. Karen Rudd
May you find comfort and strength in knowing that God loves you and he cares for you, through talking to him in prayer, and from reading God's inspired Word, the Bible. Psalm 36:7 says: "How precious your loyal love is, O God! In the shadow of your wings, the sons of men take refuge". Psalm 62:8 "Pour out your hearts before him. God is a refuge for us". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 57:1; Psalm 55:22) jw.org
