I am so sorry to hear of Shirley's passing. Shirley was a great person and shared many family memories with me on our walks around the mall. Shirley was a very special friend to the Rise and Stride mall walkers and surely will be missed. Our sympathy, thoughts and prayers are with Shirley's family and friends.
