We got to know Shirley when we started church services for Northiron Church at Eastwood Nursing Center. We became instant friends. As I was new at this type of ministry, she was one of my cheerleaders, and gave me much encouragement. I am so glad that I was able to give her encouragement and pray with her for her concerns. She was especially concerned with others of her friends at the facility that were going through physical crises, and she was so brokenhearted about their suffering. That was Shirley in a nutshell, and I am so glad to have gotten to know such a wonderful lady. This will be a hard Christmas for you all, but please know that Shirley is celebrating Christmas with Jesus, and we'll all get to celebrate with her there someday. We will pray for your family as you mourn for her and wish we could make it to the funeral. With love and prayers, Robert and Jean Lindholm.
