I am sorry for your loss. I use to have many conversations with Shirley and Norma when they would come over to Good Sam to walk in the mornings as well as when they had the cottagers breakfast. They would stop by my office and we always found something to talk about. She will be missed by many. I am sorry I am in Florida and unable to be at her services.
