Shirley's passing has left me so sad. She was such a generous, kind, and caring person. We were friends at Number 9 School and Ben Franklin High School. I always admired her courage in dealing with her surgeries and her pain. She was so generous to loan me her wedding gown when I got married two years after she did. I'll always think of her when I look at my wedding photos.
If I'm feeling such a loss, I can't imagine the loss her husband, children, and all who were part of her daily life must feel. My condolences to all who mourn her. She was a beautiful person, in all ways.
