For a wonderful lady who took care of me (Joyce) and my two brothers Kenny and Ricky Watson at the Millersville Mennonite Children’s Home. She cared for all of us children and we loved her.. I visited her several times though the years I was growing up. We would tell stories  and had alot of laughs about the good old days.  Shirley I will never forget you. I am glad you were part of my life and you will always have a  place in my heart.Heavens rejoicing for an Angel has come home. Gone but not forgotten.. I love Shirley..
