    We are so sorry for your loss. We enjoyed getting to know Shirley through Chuck and his family. She had a wonderful sense of humor and great laugh! We loved visiting with her and hearing stories of Georgia Bulldog games, her family growing up, married life and raising two boys! She will be missed!!
