  9. I know this might be a bit late to leave condolences and what not but I just want to leave my condolences to Shirley’s family. She was a loving person and very, very easy to get along with. I remember when I was younger, Shirley and I did alot together, she took me and my family swimming, she used to make trips to see us and we made trips just to see her, we went camping with her and Gord. Shirley also cherished my twin boys…She would always ask how they were doing and say they’re getting so big and what not. She did make plans to come and visit in 2010 but that didn’t happen…Shirley you will forever be missed dearly and we all will have you in our thoughts and prayers. May you rest in peace.
