I am sorry to send my condolences so late, but I just now learned of Shirley's passing. Larry and Shirley were such wonderful neighbors. Shirley and I became walking buddies, and we had many happy times just walking and talking together. I considered her a good friend, and I am so saddened to hear of her passing. My thoughts are with you all and especially with Larry.
