    Shirley and Pat were two of my closest friends since I was a teenager. I spent time with them at Lake Egypt and had a bond that I will always cherish. They were family to me and I will miss them but grateful they are together again.Cheers to them both. Thinking of Cheri and the family and sending you all thoughts and prayers. Love Jeannie and Jack Greene

    Sherry, I have so many fun and sweet memories of your parents and my parents. Most of them are centered around get togethers with other bank employees celebrating something or another. Your mom was a gem. Just so sweet; always showing concern when one of my parents was sick. My mom loved her dearly and loved working with her for so many years. Thankful for the long lasting friendship that formed from work. I’m thinking there is praise and thanksgiving going on in heaven. Prayers to you and the family during this time.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Shirley will be greatly missed. Shirley was such a wonderful person. I’m so glad she went home to be with Pat. Now she is at such peace. Praying for God to comfort you by wrapping his arms around you.
