    I am so sorry to hear of Shirley's passing.  I met her last April in the nursing home, she sat at our table.  She always had a smile, and could come up with some good one liners.  I got to reconnect with her a little bit in January when I was again in the nursing home.  You are in my thoughts and prayers.  I see where your dad passed away in fall of 1919.  To loose your Mom & Dad in one years has to be rough.  Prayers will be sent your way!

    Always, Sharon Rokes
