    Your mothers name brought a smile upon my face. The night I was born my brother Doug had boy scouts at St Mikes. I believe Shirley was den mother. Since my parents were so busy Shirley drove my brother Doug home and told my brother Doug she would never forget my birthday as we shared January 18th. Many years later she approached me when she started the lunch program at St Mikes with I know your birth date-for years we honored each other on January 18th. SHE WAS A WONDERFUL WOMEN and I believe the kids from St Mikes would have many pleasant memories.Sincerest sympathies
