Shirley, You always found a way to make me laugh about life. You were a good friend. Kathy and I always enjoyed being with you either at your house or over Baloga's. I guess the memory I can share is that 99% of the time we saw you, a wendy's cup and napkin were in your hand. Miss you much - Kathy and John

Shirley was the best neighbor anyone could ever have! She was always there for me. Whenever I was over there she would ask me if I wanted a "blue drink" and she would say "you know where to find them." I remember our many games of catch phrase with my mom & dad, Joey, Liz, Amy, and little Joey. You can't forget the first time she went in our hot tub, she blew right out of the seat. She would also give me advice about softball. A little more than a week before she died we went to visit her in the hospital. She told me to stay positive and never to get down on yourself even if your not having a good game. On April 15, the day she died, I had a softball game. I pitched in the game and I had a bad inning. I remembered what she said and I stayed positive. We won. I say that I played that game for Shirley. She will be missed very much.
