Condolence & Memory Journal

Our deepest condolences to Shirley's husband Dave and all the family.

Posted by Cathy & Bob Staurovsky - Stratford, CT - Friend   October 29, 2018

Bob and I have known Shirley and Dave for most of our lives and have considered them to be our best friends all that time. We were fortunate to have shared the pleasure of many vacations and cruises both near and far with them, and a wonderful road trip out west, and Friday night dinners together after a busy work week for years. She always looked at the bright side of everything which made being with her such a joy. Dave and their children and grandchildren were everything to her, and the new found love of her church in West Ashley. I remember walking around the grounds and inside the church with them on our last visit to Charlston, and how excited she was to show us everything.

She will be truly missed, and deep condolences to her children, grandchildren and sister Pattie. Gs

The words, "I'm sorry for your loss" cannot truly express the feeling of loss. We all go back to childhood raising our children together and truly enjoying living life as dear close friends.

To David and family - please take solace in knowing that Shirley is in a much better place , free of pain and waiting for all of us to be together again.

In deepest friendship and sympathy,
