Julianne and family, we were so saddened to hear of Shirley's passing. She was always such sweet person and had that special smile for everyone. She will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you all, knowing this is going to be a great transition for the family and friends; however, we know where she is. Again, our prayers are with you and we love you.
