  1. The precious thoughts that come to mind; you are no longer in pain and that Paul was waiting for you to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. May you forever be in the arms of our Dear Lord and forever watch over your sons. I know I am blessed to have John in my life. You surely raised a fine young man.

  2. Deepest sympathy to the Morrow family, from one animal lover to another. I adopted Bella’s son, and Pixie’s brother 1/2006. We call him Cody, aka, Lucky Laddie. I’m sad to hear the news of her passing. Your mother was a very sweet lady and I’m sure she is going to be deeply missed by all. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

  3. I was very sad to see of Shirleys’ passing. She was a good neighbor for many years. I will always remember her fried zucchini. Rest easy in Gods arms.

  4. Went thru 8 grades with Shirley in Ellport & 4 years at Lincoln HS.
    There were only 10 of us who went from Ellport in 1952 to Lincoln.
    She was such a quite, nice young lady then & probably carried that with her thru out her life.
    I had not seen her since 1956 since I have been living out west but am so sorry to hear of her passing.
    My condolences to her family.

  5. I am so sorry to hear of Shirley’s passing.
    I am originally from Ellport, have gone thru 8 grades there with her & then to Lincoln HS.
    There were only 10 of us who went from Ellport back in 1952 to Lincoln.
    Shirley was always so quiet & well mannered & probably was that thru out her life.
    I moved out west & did not see her since graduation but I am sure she will be missed by her family.
