Granville, my heart breaks over the loss of Shirley. As you probably remember, Shirley was the one who first put me on a piano bench in the Junior Sunday School Department at Briarwood Baptist Church and set me on a path that I still follow today as a church organist. She was a special person to so many, but especially to me because she was always encouraging and believed so strongly in me. I also never open a bible without thinking of her in Bible Drills. You, Tammy and Mandy will especially be in my prayers over the next few days. May God grant you all peace and comfort during this difficult time.
Granville, it is with a heavy heart that I bid farewell to Shirley but I know she is in a much better place without any pain as she enjoys her new residence in heaven with our Lord and Savior. She was indeed a very special friend and will be missed greatly by all who knew her. May God grant you and the family peace and comfort in the days ahead.
