    Dear Ron and Family:
    Arlene and I are deeply saddened by the lose of your dear wife and mother Shirley. It seems like only yesterday that we holidayed with You and Shirley in Australia and New Zealand. Our friendship grew as we developed our considerable golfing skills over the past 15 years at Heritage Pointe and at other golf courses near Calgary. It is truly shocking to realize that Shirley will no longer be here to share her life with you, your family and also with Arlene and I.

    Arlene and Glen Johnston.

    Dear Ron and Family; I have just recently learned of Shirley’s passing. My sibling’s (Pat & Tom) and I grew up with Shirley & Lorraine in Bala. Altho you do not know me I believe you and Shirley used to meet up with my sister Pat in Guelph during your boys lacross games many years ago. Also our family were all so grateful for when she visited our brother Tom in a Calgary nursing home a few years back. Please know how sorry we are and accept our sincere condolences. Keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.
    Sincerely Janice & Norm Jackson
    Bala, Ont.
