It was so sad to here that aunt Shirley has passed. My mind
is flooded with so many memories. Our camping trip together, Rhode Island family gatherings,
weekly visits to Naugatuck and when you all would come to Wallingford. We shared all the holidays,
birthdays and graduations together. I remember the joy I would see in her face when my mother
and her were in their craft phase. From Readers Digest Christmas trees, to Cabbage Patch Kids
to Candy making. So much laughter. She was an amazing aunt. On the holidays
she went our of her way to make the cookies we all liked. I know its a small thing but she
was the only one that could do celery sticks right. Yes and amazing aunt and beautiful person.
My condolencies to Paul and Janice and their families. She was definetly loved and
will be missed.

I am so sorry for the loss of Shirley. She was a resident at The Village at East Farms for a while while my mom was there. She was so very sweet, we chatted on numerous occasions, and she had the most beautiful sparkling blue eyes. My mom passed in April from the virus, now there are two more angels in the world. Your are in my thoughts and prayers.
