    Your Condolence Message:

    I want to express my sympathy to Elizabeth and family. Shirley was certainly one of a kind and I want everyone to know how wonderful Shirley was. I once commented on how nice Shirley looked; her sweater looked so nice on her and she took if off and gave me the sweater. She would not take no for an answer. She was kind to others and literally gave to others first. She was one of a kind and will be missed. Elizabeth Watkins
