    Dear Gramer Family, We are so sorry to hear of Shirley's passing. We met her through Uncle Don and enjoyed our visits to Clinton to see them. Shirley proudly showed us family pictures each time so though we never had the pleasure of meeting you, we enjoyed hearing about your family. We will miss her big smiles, sense of humor and laughter, and sharing Rastrellis pizza. Blessings to your family.

If I had the time before her cares I help with her puzzle or talk with her during her cares. When I went up there for a meeting or computer time I would make a special trip to her room. God bless her family. take care.♡
