I am so sorry Patricia and Jimmy to hear about your mother. I know all of you from Blackwell AME Zion Church. What a loss. Your mother was a beautiful person inwardly and outwardly. I will never forget that loving smile. My prayers are with the family and all of you have my deepest and sincere sympathy. This is a great loss and Shirley will be missed. God Bless all of you and may Shirley rest in peace with the Lord.
