Aunt Shirley you will be missed. Every time I saw you, you always brightened up my day. I often think of the trip to Atlantic City that we took with you & my brother Wayne, we had a blast! You will always live on in my heart.

Love, Cynthia, Sharon, Roselani, Shane and Ted

Mr. Will, Debbie, Andy & Kristin,
My deepest condolences to you all at this time. May all of the loving memories you all have help to ease you grief at this time. I have been blessed to have had Mama Shirley in my life. I will always cherish the memories of the weekends we spent together. We were always on the go and had so much love, laughter and good times. Thanks for getting my ears pierced with Aunt Stella, that was a blast. I love you so much!! I will miss her deeply as I know you all will too. May she rest in eternal peace. Hugs & kisses to you all at this time.
John & Debbie (Leonard) Nigro
