Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Shirley & I met as co-workers at the former Post Office Department. Even after we both went on to different employers, we still got together a few times a year for lots of laughs over our shared work experiences (and pet peeves). She was a proud mother to Kerry and Kevin and had much admiration for Heather. And Shirley shared many fond memories of Hank and military Service life and her beloved pets, the latest of which was Samson--who had his own "card". Oh yes, Shirley will be missed. Let's all listen to Pachelbels of her favourites........ - Posted by: Linda Parnell-Bonnie (Friend) on: Nov 09, 2019
