    Aunt Shirley will be dearly missed. I have been thinking about all the times with her growing up. They are all fond memories. Talking to her on the phone sending cards and best of all at Lake Winnepausaukee.. Our times together at Christmas and celebrating my birthday with Uncle Gordon. They are good and wonderful memories.
    Rest well Aunt Shirley.

    Love Joanne
