    Wow Sis, how ones perspective of life can change in an instant. I will miss your laughter, your humor, and your stories. But most importantly, your legacy will live on in my heart of the lessons you taught us all about caring for others, kindness, loving, and giving of self. I can still hear your voice so clearly, just as if you were right here. My heart is both heavy with sadness because of your transitioning, and filled with continuing Joy because I get to say You are my Sister whom I Love. To Thina Kevin and the rest of the Family, I know it’s hard right now but let the Love and Memories take root in your Heart and dwell in your Soul. Shirley, from your Baby Brother, Love You.

    When my sister called me and told me of Shirley’s transitioning I was saddened. Memories of her on Granby and 33rd Street at her window. She and my sister Barbara Jean were friends for many years. Shirley was always kind, with a beautiful smile.
    With my deepest sympathy to the family. Shirley will be missed. Dale Underdue
