Ann, David, Doug and Uncle Gerald: Mike and I want to extend our deepest sympathy for your loss. Aunt Shirley was always such a great lady to be around. I saw her right after my dad died and she couldn’t have been more loving towards me, even though she was not my blood relative, she always treated me as if I were. She will be missed!! Again my deepest sympathy!
