Condolence From: Patrina Mitchell
Condolence: I send my deepest condolences to you during this difficult time. I can't even begin to imagine how painful this is for you all. May Jehovah God provide you the strength you need to cope with this difficult situation. The Bible provides hope that you will be reunited with your loved one at Acts 24:15, which states, "there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." I hope this message provides some comfort to friends and family, and I again offer my sincere condolences.

Condolence From: Connie Makus
Condolence: From the very first time I met Shirley, she made me feel totally accepted and part of the family.
She loved Jesus, her family, and friends with all her heart. She was always there to help no matter what. I have never met a more selfless woman. She was gentle and strong at the same time. She was always positive and I never once heard her complain. I will miss her beautiful smile! We thank the Lord for blessing us with such a beautiful lady. She truly leaves the world a better place. I love you and miss you already.
