  3. Shirley was my best friend for many years. We lost contact and for years I looked for her. Today I see why I could not find her. How sad. Forever I will cherish the beautiful memories of wonderful conversations and laughter that we shared. Shirley had a laugh and smile that I will never forget. There will never be another Shirley Fox.
