    It is always hard to lose a parent and I cannot even imagine losing your life-long soul mate. Mother loved her youngest sister dearly. Though it has been many years, since I have seen Aunt Shirley, I have thought of her often as she was always so sweet to me when I was a youngster. May fond memories you will all share through stories and pictures become a celebration of her life to help you as you mourn your loss.
