To the family.
Known only to me as Aunt Shirley. The years and hours spent playing at your house with the kids, WERE THE BEST!!!!! My mom & dad , your closest of friends were always excited as we headed over to Aunt Shirleys. As a child, I just could not get There fast enough.

The memories connected to your store and the many snowsuits my mom & dad bought my daughter Lynne from your store.
You will always hold a more than special place Aunt Shirley, in my heart. My precious daughter Lynne died two years ago. I would love to imagine you two chatting and reminicing together in heaven.

You are loved by SO many!!!!!! And even during any of the times we lost contact, your place and your whole family's place remained in my heart. And you forever will.
There are so, SO many memories, and I have beautiful pictures of you and Neil your husband, that sadly you lost at such a young age. I am so, so sorry for your family.
They love you so very much Aunt Shirley.

To Shirley's Family:

So sorry for your loss of a wonderful lady. Shirley was my favorite Tupperware Dealer and Leader. She was always there to help and made me feel like a part of her team . Sorry I didn't get over to see her in these later years to visit her, as I had planned. Shirley will be missed greatly. God Bless each of you.
