Shirley quickly became a very good friend here at The Oaks at Byron Center. We shared the same life in Christ Jesus, and often had spiritual discussions.
Shirley and I both liked jigsaw puzzles. We sometimes worked as a team-she found many pieces and picked up those that ended on the floor. I put pieces in for her due to her tremor. Neither of us are computer experts, but worked together to solve problems. I will miss her a greatly.
