Praying for peace and comfort for the entire family. Although we all went separate ways after marriage, I will always remember the fun days we had in the 70's and on.

Shirleane always kept a smile on her face and a joke in her pocket. Every event we worked together she always had me in tears laughing, no matter how she felt, she made it her business to ask if I was okay. I am going to miss her beautiful smile and her loving hugs. May peace and love be with the family at this time. I love you all and I send my condolences.
