    My mom, (who passed away in 2017), and Shirley used to like to hit the rummage sales when we all lived in Milwaukee some 50 or so years ago. My first thought when i heard Shirley had passed was – Yup, they are going to meet up again and do the rummage sale thing BIG time. Have alot of memories from back then – and Thanks for every one of them.

    Karl, Toni, & Kristine,
    I have you in my prayers. My first thought when I heard was that she caught that train going south, I think she’s sitting somewhere warm where she can see the flowers, birds, and all her loved ones.
