Joan, Alan, John and families;
I wish to express my sympathy to Shirley's family upon her death. Shirley and Scott were very special people to, my late husband, Gordon and me over the years. We enjoyed many pleasant visits with them, always a listening ear and words of encouragement along the road of life. May you find comfort in the days ahead through precious memories of your years together.

Alan, John, Joan and families: Our acquaintance with Shirley began with music. We are blessed to have met this lady and have her touch our lives. We felt rewarded every time we saw her delight in having Alan and Wayne entertain her on her Birthdays over the past several years. Shirley was of quiet, kind and appreciative demeanor, and we will always remember her. May you find comfort in memories. God Bless you all. Our Sincere Sympathy, Tender Thoughts and Prayers, Wayne & Muriel Hiltz
