    Dear Family, I wish to express my sympathy on the loss of Shirley. At a time like this it seems there are no appropriate words to soothe your pain, however we know that God cares for you 1Peter 5:7. May knowing that reality and the fact that family and friends have you in their thoughts bring you comfort at this time.
