I love you, James, Judy, Faye, Ricky, and Jimmy. My heart aches for all of you. I hope that each of you know that though she's in Heaven, while she's giving big hugs to Mabel, Johnny, Charles and Carolyn, she's looking over their shoulder and sees each of your tears. She will never stop watching over you, and her love for you will only grow stronger. Shirley was always a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. Everyone that knew her will miss her. 💖

To Mr. Stevens and family

We are sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. Stevens.  She was always thoughtful and kind. She was a blessing  to all.I  remember when we first moved into our home she brought  us a loaf of banana bread  to welcome us to the neighborhood and she notified us when someone broke into our home. It is the memories of loved ones that can bring comfort. It was our privilege to have her in our lives.  May God bless you all.
