CHEERS! Shirley will always be Shirley Jackson!  The good times and fun and your sense of humor.  Great times with you and Aunt Janie Burkey and our swimming trips to New Holland with a car load from Compass and traveling in your old car “Leroy” (fellt we might need to pusg Leroy up Himes Hill to get home).  And the times I would set your hair for a “hot Saturday date”.  Great memories and also the times with Barb and Nat – they are carbon copies of you.  Only the good die young.  
Paul & Mary Lou (Shorty Stern) Weaver
