My deepest sympathy to the loved ones of Shirley. She was a classmate in our class of 1959. I always felt a bit of envy for the kids from Covington and Herman. They lived far from L’Anse and the bus rides had to be awful, but they were so smart. May she rest in our Father’s loving hands. Please know we are praying for her loved ones during these heartbreaking days. God Bless. Barb Johnson Hanshaw
