  1. Gramma Shirley. Me, Len, Keith’s Father-in-Law, never had any Grandparents as they passed away before I was old enough to remember any of them. But I had 2 “adopted” Grammas. My wife’s Gramma, “Granny” and Keith’s gramma, Gramma Shirley. They were special Grammas to me and now, Gramma Shirley is gone and at 74 I have none. Gramma Shirley was a bright light in the sky. Always smiling. Always laughing and a pleasure to be around. May God Bless you Gramma Shirley and may the Good Lord give you a special place in Heaven. 🙏

  2. Michele and family,

    So very sorry on the loss of your sweet mom, she was such a fun lady to be around. I loved her smile, her silliness, her spunk. She was always fun to be around and she will be missed by so many people. Thanks for sharing her with me Michele, I feel blessed for having known her.
    I know whenever she is, she’ll make sure they get her a beer!! lol Cherish the memories etched upon your hearts of this dear lady!! She’ll always be with you xoxo
