So sorry for your loss. She watched our son William for a few hours a week when he was 2 or 3 while I volunteered at school. She was a gentle soul.

Oh, so sad to hear of Shirley's passing. My friend and neighbor for so many years. We shared many a fun time, good visits and recipes. Farm trips were part of our lives together. My love to Henry and Susan and the rest of Shirley's family.
