    My deepest sympathy goes out to the family of my dearest friend Shirley. Shirley and I were a part of a close group of friends who grew up on Lumley St. We have remained close through marriages, children and moves. Shirley was a special and loving person who always remembered important occasions with cards and best wishes. I will miss her laughter and kind words when the Lumley Girls meet again for a birthday lunch. Rest in heavenly peace my dear friend, you will be missed.
