Shirley’s Camas Prairie smile and sincerity were always demonstrated to whoever she met, and her friends were the loyal and dedicated real people you’d want to meet. Although our hearts are broken, your family will take you with us wherever we go and show the Big Love that we learned from you. Thanks for the tremendous outpouring of support from our friends.
