Shirley you were one of the most caring, loving and kindest person I ever have been blessed to have in my life. You were the most giving person and even if you truly didnt have to give. You were my biggest little sister. And the best Aunt any niece or nephew could have. Thank you for being in my life. Love you forever

I'll miss you always. Love you forever. Cherish every memory I have with you. I promise to do my very best. Never back down like you told me. Always laugh my hardest because my laughter was "catchy". Love Your Little Sister, of course you know my name. (A inside joke between us.)
