My deepest and most heartfelt condolences to your sweet girls Shirley. I am so very grateful that I was blessed to have known you in my early years as Coni and I were growing up. I thank you for treating me with such kindness and acceptance at all times ..even when we were bad. You always had a wonderful impact on my life for just being the wonderful you you were all the time. I wish I could see the breath taking Glory you are witnessing this very moment. I know it can only be beyond words. God bless and keep you always and shines his favor, comfort and love brightly on your beautiful girls and loving family. You are missed and fondly thought of regularly. Until we meet again precious lady.
