    Met Shirley and Morris in the mid 1970’s when we joined the Thunderbird club in Indiana. Always a lot of fun then and also when we got together later in Florida in another Thunderbird club. We miss her.

    Sorry to hear about Aunt Shirley. I have good memories of staying with her as a kid. It’s sad to think the people who knew me as a kid have passed on. You still have me and my sisters who remember you as kids.
    Now our connection has been broken because mom talked to Shirley and she told her about your family and then mom told me. I guess now we have Facebook.

    So sorry to hear about your loss. I will miss seeing her. Ross would take her for a walk and bring her by the laundry room and we would talk to her. She was a sweetheart. Be praying for the family.
