Dear Kathy and Tracey, we are so sorry to hear of Shirley’s passing. Do you think Jim ever had count on all the hammers we lost putting up diving boards at the river? Shirley never did tell on us for taking the hammers. She was a such a super lady. Good times with your family on the Ohio River. Our prayers are with you and your families during this time of loss. God Bless, Jean, Mike, & Evan Voleck

We have so many memories with Shirley and Jim. We took our summer boating trips and Shirley was always laughing and smiling. She loved her dogs. My thoughts are with you Tracey, Kathy, and your families during this really hard time. Your mom was a special one.
