    I had the opportunity to meet Shirley in 1973 when I began working at the hospital as a ward clerk. I wasn’t there for very long, but during the time I was there she was always willing to help me while I was learning the job. I am so sorry for your loss. I know you will miss her. She was a great personl

    Dear Boyd Family,
    I am so sorry to have read of your loss; please accept my sincere condolences. Something that I have personally found to be of great comfort are the thoughts expressed at John 5:28,29 as well as Revelation 21:4. In these verses we find a wonderful hope for the future of being reunited with our loved ones upon the earth the way it was originally intended–free from sickness, suffering, and death. Knowing this has comforted me greatly and it is my sincere hope that these thoughts comfort your family as well. Again I am so sorry for your loss.

    To Shirley’s family. I worked with Shirley many years on 2nd West at TJ. She was one of the best Ward Clerk’s I ever worked with. She was a huge help to me. I am a registered nurse. She was always so caring and kind. She did her job well and you could always tell that she took her work seriously. I was with her the day her son passed away. That was so hard on her. I don’t think she ever got over it. God Bless you all. Shirley will be missed.
