    Snook-e was my wonderful partner and soulmate for49 years. We did most everything together and our love for each other was a cherished gift. She had the prettiest blue eyes and a warm smile. I am so lost and empty without her and my heart is so heavy with the pain over losing her. I will continue to love her for the rest of my life until we meet again in heaven. She is now at peace, without pain, living in the kingdom of God, watching over her family and friends and I am sure that she is watching over me.

    Our deepest sympathy to Shirley and all of "Snook-e's" family. We will never forget how she went out of her way to help us when she hadn't even met us except to talk over the phone. We were so fortunate to be able to say we were her friends and we will never forget what a wonderful, giving person she was. She will be missed by so many!
