    We are so sorry for your loss. We always loved visiting and laughing with Shirley at celebrations in Hankamer throughout the years. She was such a special lady!

    Aunt Shirley always greeted us with open arms when we would travel from Victoria for a visit. Her fig tarts or strawberry cake would be accompanied by a delicious gumbo that uncle LJ had prepared. She loved to catfish and I saw her many times battling one on the end of her fishing pole. Will miss her sweet smile.
