Shirl, I will sure miss you and all of our gambling trips whether it was Vegas, West Virginia or downtown we always had loads of fun. This is the first birthday we won't be celebrating together but you will be in my heart as I remember the past fifty we were together. You were a great friend and I'm so happy I have so many great memories.

I am so sorry to hear of Shirley's passing. She was one of the sweetest persons that I knew. Always interested in how me and my family were doing. I missed her when she was no longer able to go to Fitworks. I didn't realize that her sister Mary had recently passed. Maybe Shirley couldn't wait to join her sister in heaven, because that's where they both are now. RIP girls. Your friend, Mike Urbancic
