Aunt Shirley: You Will Always Be In Our Hearts

She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the

Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
– Proverbs 31: 25-31

How did you find the energy, Aunt Shirley

Yet find time to be , hairdresser,
caretaker, businesswoman,and playmate,
I just can’t comprehend.

I see now it was love
That made you come whenever we'd call,
Your inexhaustible love.
And I thank you for it all.

We Love You and We M…
