Our condolences go out to Shirley's family. Shirley became fast friends with my father, Whitney, while she was living at Amica. Dad thoroughly enjoyed their visits. I had a number of entertaining conversations with her as well. She always had a smile on her face and was sincere in her query as to how I was doing. She was a breath of fresh air! May she rest in peace. - Whitney (and Valerie) Cook

Dear Family - so sorry for your loss. Shirley and Earle were so kind to our great grandchildren in asking them to swim in their pool so often. Our kids loved them. And we sure had a lot of fun at the Curling Club before, during and after bonspiels and games. "Got a buck"? - fun times.
