Guestbook/Condolences

Dear Ralph and family, I am so sad to read of Shirleys passing. I have some wonderful memories of working with her at the answering service and the Hershey Center. I also have fun memories of your family. Shirleys million dollar smile and sweet voice are unforgetable. Her testimony and strong belief in the Gosple and the purpose of the Temple will always stay with me. I am so sorry for your loss and will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Cousin Shirley,

You have always been a light in my life, a beacon on the path. You loved me when it was easy, and still when it was difficult. You never seemed to question my choices, the roads I took, the dreams I followed. You loved me, with a pure heart. I rest in the knowledge of that love, and in the certainty that you are right where you always promised that you would be.
