Great Uncle Loie and Great Aunt Shirley were so incredibly special in my life. I wouldn't have my nickname without them and Great Uncle Norman.
I have many menmories of Great Aunt Shirley... she was always loving, supportive and had a great laugh.
She was so blessed by the love of you both, Becky and the grandkids.
I love you all!
