    My sincere sympathy. I enjoyed reconnecting with Shirley recently if only by email. I remember playing with her and her group of friends as a child and they always included me even though I was a few years younger.

    First met your Mom when she and Bill let me keep my boat at their cottage on the Rideau. We certainly enjoyed some good times there and I always liked to visit Shirley over the years.
    She had a great life and will be missed, my condolences.
