Lesa and family - Such a wonderful service today. I loved Shirley like a Mom and she was soo good to me and Holden and I cherish all the time we spent together and am so glad God put us all together. I'll miss her smile and willingness to to listen and share her life with me and Holden. You all mean so much to me and I know God will get us through this time. She was such a wonderful example and christian lady and enjoyed life and her family. She was such a good example for me and I'll miss her but I know she's in heaven and we'll see each other again. I love you guys and prayers for you daily. Love you. Kathy

Dear Shirleys family
I just wanted to let you know all of the school nurses are saddened to hear of Shirleys passing. She was a wonderful school nurse who is remembered for helping all of the students and all of the less experienced school nurses. She will be missed.
