To my family although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer.
Aunt Shirley I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday and the days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak of your name and time me and my siblings spent at your house on the weekends. All I have now are memories. Your memory is a keepsake from which I'll never ever part.
God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart..
