Sharlotte, Anne, Farmer, Clay and Bibi: I was saddened to read of Ms. Shirley's passing. She was a wonderful woman, a lovely heart, and a mom to all she knew. I know each of you will be missing that glorious smile she shared with many people, especially her children. She and Mr. Bill were the lights in each other's eyes, take comfort that they are playing cards and having a grand time together, again. Love to all.
