Lisa, Not sure you remember me from Genes. I played bingo with your Mom and made some birthday cards for her. I lost track of Shirley when she left Grand America but thought of her often. My condolences to your family for your loss, but I know that you have many loving memories that will help you through this. Please know that your Mom had many friends who enjoyed their time with her also. Hugs and prayers Kathi
