  1. Dear David, Nicole and Brian, John and I were so saddend to hear about Shirlie. At the same time our thoughts can only serve to remind us of how much we loved and enjoyed being in her persence. Shirlie was a person who made the room light up when she walkd in. She certainly made a difference in our lives, and we are so thankful for having known her and your family as loving friends. We miss her. John and Barbara

  2. Dear David and Nicole: I’m not certain how you come to terms with the loss of a wife and mother as dear as Sherlie. Many say that time heals the wounds and gives us the memories. I hope that is so. You know Sherlie as a wife, and a mother. I’d like to share with you what it was like knowing Sherlie as a co-worker and friend. I hope this memory will round out the memories you have of her. I went to work at Continental Airlines on Monday just after the Christmas holiday in 1993. Sherlie often told a story of taking one look at me and knowing I would fit right in … but I think that was because of Sherlie, not me. For the next year, it was an experience unlike anywhere else I have ever worked. Women are not always kind to one another in the workplace. Sometimes there is pettiness or jealousy. It is not often you can put six women in one area, and they get along with one another, and work well together. But that is exactly what happended for the next year. At the end of each day, we would all look up and say, “who needs help?” and everyone would step in to do whatever it took to help each other. I have never in all my years of working, either before or since, experienced anything like that year at Continental. That was Sherlie. She made us one; she was always supportive of the individual, and the group. She had a zest for life that made it a joy to be with her. My life has been enriched by having known Sherlie. She is my hero, and I only hope in time I can be more like her. At our last gathering, brunch in October, 2006, there was a photographer. And somehow, it seemed right to get a picture of the three of us. I shall treasure that picture, and the memories of a good and kind person. We need more of them on earth, but I can understand that God needed Sherlie too.

  3. Dear David and Nicole, I know that it has been a long time since we have seen each other, but we were truely saddened by the news of Sherlie’s passing. We as a family have often spoken of you, but as time goes by there is always a reason for not getting in touch with those we have known and cared about. Our deepest thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of sorrow and need. We are still just around the corner if you need another friend. Love you guys, Glenn and Pam

  4. Dear David and Nicole and Brian, Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time in the loss of Shirlie. She was always so fun and full of life when we were around her. Words can’t convey what we feel at such a loss. Our hearts are with you. Love, Conni and Rex
