It is with great sadness that I write this. I am so sorry and send very big hugs to my friend in Heaven, that is where we will meet again, I am sure. Our friendship will be like we hadn't lost a minute of time. Our laughs will be as robust as they have always been, and our hugs will be a tight as always. Love you Shirl

We are so very sorry to hear of Shirley's passing. She was so full of joy and good humor. We have many memories of Shirley's enthusiasm, cheering from the sidelines at soccer games years ago. She was talented and generous, and the life of every party. Mike, Derek, and Josh, we will keep you in our prayers as you grieve the loss of this wonderful woman who loved you so much.

How do you put into words a lifetime of love and memories that she provided to us..
It is so very difficult.
Mike, thank you for taking such excellent care of Shirley, you were her rock. Joshua and Derek, she loves you beyond words..
Hopefully she is playing Yahtze, feasting on an endless supply of crab legs, Sadie, Duncan and Eddie keeping her company, partying with Lin and Johnny and the rest of the Rossi clan.
Love to you all.

John, Elaine and Danielle

Auntie Shirley (as I knew you through Janaelle), such a force in this life. A true fighter of epic battles. You were loved by so many. I always enjoyed your hugs and laughs, and dancing to music with you of course. I hope you are resting now in complete joy. You will be missed.

Shirley was always a kind and considerate person; a pleasure to know and work with. I had the good fortune to know her. I was one of the lucky ones. She will be missed.
