    Dear Shirley’s Family, We are so sorry to hear of Shirley’s passing. We had no idea she was even ill. She had a desk at RD Mann outside my son’s office. His name was Tim(othy)Bott. They had worked together many years. He passed away 9-25-10 and she felt so bad about his passing. He was 45 when he left us and two days after his 46th birthday, 2011,Shirley left us. Who would have ever guessed that they would leave us less than a year apart! So strange how things happen. We only met Shirley the one time we came to the office to pick up Tim’s belongings, which I believe she had gathered up for us. She went out to the car with us and Barbara, too, as we left. She was a sweet, dear lady. We won’t forget her and what she did for my son and us.

    We had emailed each other over the past year and she was working on trying to locate a video that my son was in. I recently wrote her that if she could lcoate it, I would send her a gift card. I gave her a gift subscription to Good Housekeeping last fall and I recently wrote to tell her I didn’t plan on renewing mine so if she wanted to keep on receiving the magazine, she’d have to take care of it. I don’t think the subscription expires until March of 2012, so one of you can enjoy it or share it. My records show we last exchanged emails on May 19.

    Today, 8-15-11, I got an email from a coworker of hers, Lindsay Beamer, telling me the sad news. I had seen her obituary in yesterday’s KC paper and didn’t want to believe it. I am keeping it to remember her sweet face. I will be writing to Lindsay this evening. She said Shirley didn’t come back to work after the 4th of July and what had happened. Lindsay has been checking Shirley’s emails for the company. How amazing that her mother is still going at 102!

    Once, again, we are so sorry for your loss of a fine person. We are sorry to lose her, too, someone who knew my son for many years and cared about him. Now they can be together again and not have to be earning a paycheck! What a nice surprise for him to see her!! Wish she and I could have emailed for a longer time. She had told me she would go to Tim’s memorial service if we were coming, but we weren’t. We live in Oregon.

    May God grant you a sense of peace in your grieving. Our prayers are with you.
    Gloria and Steve Smith
