Whenever I think of Shirley I see her sitting in the church pew with her beautiful every ready smile. She always had a kind word to say and wanted to know how you were doing. Shirley was the head of our Women's day Group study session long before i joined it. She was always well prepared and we all looked forward to her presentations. She has been missed from our group for some time and although we still meet it's not been the same. She is rejoicing with her family that went before her and most of all our Lord.
