To all the Gross kids and families. I wrote on Shirley's memory wall the first few days after she passed, but it appears to not have posted. So I will write again about what Shirley meant to me growing up, along with Harold and all of you. WM standard bearers. I was visiting my Dad at Christmas at BB, and was so sorry your mom passed before I could visit with her. I'm sure it was a difficult Christmas for all of you. I will always remember her smile and loving manner. My sympathies to you all. Leesa

Shirley, Harold, and Family lived across from us when we were children. Good memories of running across the road to play with the kids and eat Shirley's cookies! I found an old red bicycle in their garage, which Harold was getting ready to junk....Shirley talked him into giving me that bike, which I proudly took home to learn how to ride! She always had a smile. And I always loved seeing her at the IGA. She will be missed. Condolences to the family. Lisa Smith-Philpott.
