So sorry to learn of Shirley’s passing and that I won’t be in town for her service. She was a huge part in my younger years at Spray Baptist Church. Her love and dedication taught many of us about Gods love and His plans for our lives. From her teachings I know that I will see her again. She had such an impact on my life.
