You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. If you need anything let me know.
I'll miss your mom and the talks that we had.


Sorry for your loss. Aunt Shirley ALWAYS treated me like her real niece and not just a relative through marriage. She was a great lady! I loved her dearly. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
