So many memories over the years. From all the days of babysitting the kids, our get togethers, road trips in the evenings, stories told…and there was some real doozies! We are so saddened for your loss but knowing Shirley is with her Savior where we will someday be.

I was a Sioux Valley Hospital classmate. Shirley was sweet. and kind.

Life so fragile,
Death so sudden,
Hearts so broken.
