    Aunt Shirley was such a fun, loving, and generous person. Her family was always foremost in her mind and actions. I was blessed to have Aunt Shirley and Uncle Glen in my life. I am sad I am unable to be with the family during their time of loss. Losing your last parent is a pain that is so difficult to face. But take comfort knowing she is not in pain. Love, Donna
