prayers of support and sympathy especially to Julie and Jillian
Such a strong and wonderful woman! Spent many years working at her side for Relay for Life. She was always cheerful and eager to help. Don't find em like her too often. I know she has had a rough couple years and at least she is not hurting or tired now. God bless you Shirley.
