Barb so sorry to hear about Shirley prayers for your family

I was a coworker of Shirley's in the ACDC Kitchen. Some of my fondest memories were in that kitchen with "Dictator" (a term of endearment). My heart is very heavy over this, and my thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

We are very sorry for your loss and would like to express our condolences. Shirley was great to have at P.L.L.P. I especially enjoyed watching her fish and care for her dogs. She was not afraid to address others who were not following the rules which we greatly appreciated. Peace to your family. Jack Miller and Family

Barb/Randy and kids. I am so sorry that I did not see this until tonight and missed the services. Shirley and I enjoyed PLLP and had fun chatting over cat fishing, her boat, dogs, ACDC and mutral friends. I will miss her.
