  1. Shirley will always have a place in my heart. We were cousins growing up to know each other. We spent a lot of time together growing up. Shirley was a real caring and beautiful person. She had a great love of horses at a young age. Her love of animals was so special. I remember a day when her family came to our house and I cut my foot and Shirley was in Girl Scouts so she fixed my foot. It felt better when she was done. She was such a gentle person. Everyone loved Shirley. You are a real Angel now. May God Bless your family at this time.
