I will miss you Shirley. You were a good mother-in-law to me when I was married to Ronnie. I remember your wicked sense of humor, going to lake with you and David E., and your love of Elvis! I hope you are getting to meet him now and have him sing you a song. I will be praying for David and the rest of the family. Rest In Peace. Love, Carla
