Uncle Ed and all my cousins,

Aunt Shirley will always hold a special place in my heart. Every time I would visit Windber with my grandparents, she always took me out for a girls day. We’d have lunch and go shopping - I always looked forward to our time together. While she’ll be missed, it’s comforting knowing that she’s no longer suffering and is at peace. Love you all.
