I can appreciate knowing Bob & Shirley & family from 1966 on. 'Shorty' Brady was my mother-in-law & I had the pleasure of knowing them all in their younger days. A grand family. Hope the best for everyone.

Shirley is my aunt but more like a sister. We lived together growing up and then I moved to Arkansas with her and met my best friend and husband Al. I will always bless her for that. Nancy and Al ps tell mom hi for me.

Shirley was a talented, careing, loving, and amazing woman. She opened her home to Ken and me without hesitation. I have never seen such and outpouring of love in any family as I saw in the immediate family of Bob and Shirley David would call every 5 minutes and ask ,"What are you doing,Mom?" "The same thing I was doing 5 minutes ago, David." I thought this was so funny. Five minutes later he would call again. We are blessed that David found us and brought us into your lives. We pray that you find comfort that she is with Brian and David and others of her family at this very moment. You are not forgotten, just far away from us. Love you Bob, Bobby, Alia
