  1. I am so very sorry for your loss. I am so happy that I got to know Shirley thru St Paul’s Christian Mothers. I will miss her and her beautiful smile.

  2. It was a privledge to know Shirley as we worked together at church. She was a beautiful person and will be greatly missed by many. My prayers are with you. Please accept my deepest sympathy.

  3. I am really sorry for your loss. Aunt Shirley was a wonderful woman. I remember her as being kind and loving to me. Full of life. I pray that Our Lord will comfort you during this sad time. If there is anything your may need or just need to talk please call me at 405-703-1314. Love Angie

  4. My sincere condolences in the loss of your wife and mother. I pray God will continue to strengthen you at this sudden loss and the Holy Spirit will comfort you in your hours of need as you reflect on the life of your loved one. In John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: Paul wrote in one of his letters in 2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. What greater comfort could we know than to KNOW that you and/or your loved one is with the Lord; or when you die where you will spend eternity. I pray that each person who reads this has a point and time they can remember when they have asked the Lord Jesus to forgive them of their sins and to come in and be Lord of their life and to give them a home in heaven when they die. If you’ve never heard the gospel It starts in I Corinthians 15:3 What must anyone do to be saved? Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Even at time of someones passing someone who’s not saved can obtain and have life (more abundantly). 1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. No works are needed. No particular church. All the work was done by Christ on Calvary. Serving the ONE whom died for us; I remain. Very Truly Yours, and very sorry for your loss, John Strong (304) 677-6999
