Sherry, Randy and the family, my deepest sympathies to you all on the loss of your mom and grand mom. I remember Shirley from bowling all those years back and she was just so much fun. Even if you were on the opposing team. God Bless Her as she begins this journey home to our Lord and Savior. May God's love comfort you all during these difficult days and help you remember the sweet and happy lady she was.
