    Shirley was one of a kind she was my mom (Clarisse Cousineau) best friend. When I was a young I used to walk the dogs for her parents and then for her. She was more like family to us always so sweet and so caring. Her house was right next to the house my parents rented going over there was so much fun.
    When we moved to Union Grove, WI in 1991 she was one of the things I missed the most. I did get to see her when we would visit. And my favorite memory is right after I had my twins she got to hold both of them and it made her glow. She will always be my angel.
