  1. I remember the first day I met Shirley O’Neal. I was working with Pam at Kesselman Mortgage and I heard someone trip on the uneven walkway outside and as you know Shirley you can guess at the language I learned that day. My vocabulary was very limited before this time and now I have a full complement of four letter words! Seriously though, Shirley was a very kind and outspoken person. I have been friends with Pam and Peggy and know Colleen a little bit and they are some of the nicest, and most fun to be with, people I know. Shirley did a good job raising her kids and as a mom myself I hope that is the ultimate compliment.
