My sincere condolences to you and your family on the sudden loss of your beloved Shirley.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones.
Thinking of you at this difficult time. I am sure you have many wonderful memories of your wife, mother and grandmother. She was a special lady to many!
Dear Dave, Krista and Family
So sorry to hear of your loss. My heart is with you as you go through such a difficult time. I look forward to spending some time with you real soon. We have a strong bond and many special memories. Hugs to all of you and a very special hug for Krista.
Dave, Krista & family
How sorry we were to read of Shirley’s death. We are in Montreal at my aunt’s interment so are unable to be with you at this time. Will be in touch shortly.

Dave, Krista and family,
Shirley was such a good friend for so many years. She will be greatly missed by all of us who taught with her and visited with her. My sympathy to all of you.
My condolences to the family. Allow me to share a short story to illustrate Shirley’s sense of humour. While teaching together at Blackwell (if I remember correctly) Shirley arrived one day with a 6 quart basket of highly polished red apples for the staff. On the top row was a yellow and green warty gourd the same size as the apples. That gourd was for me. Shirley appreciated my offbeat sense of humour which we obviously shared. Sorry for your loss Dave.
To the family – Sad to hear of Shirley’s passing. I was the secretary at King George VI during a number of Shirley’s teaching years there. She was a friendly and pleasant person to be around. I travel Cathcart Blvd. often and pass the former Donald residence.
Sorry for your loss. Our thoughts are with you at this very sad time.
My condolences to you and your family for your loss.
