To My Much Loved Family,

I am truly saddened by the lost of Uncle Shirley. However I have many great memories: Filled with Much Laughter. I envision that Grandma Dorothy, Lucy, Norman, Eddie, and Uncle Shirley are All Together now preparing a place for those whom remain.

Aunt Mary,
You have been an Excellent Example of A Virtuous Women (Proverbs 31:10-31).

Love Always
