I am so sorry to read about the passing of Shirley. It sounds like she lived a full life. May you take comfort in God’s promise found in the Bible: “Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalm 34:18) It is comforting to know that God has promised a resurrection hope! (John 5:28, 29)
