    We used to play together in the sand box in our back yard. I also played softball with your father Jack in the East St.Louis YMCA league in Jones Park. Many fond memories with both of them. Richard Slocomb

    Shirley was quite a lady. She always treated me like her daughter. I know she will leave a mark on your hearts. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I had stopped a couple of times at her home to visit but I never caught up with her. Hope you are all doing well. She is now with Jack, the love of her life.
