My condolences go out to your entire family. I have so many great memories growing up with your family from the time you moved to East Berlin until we all became adults. There were almost weekly weekend sleepovers, daily visits, and multiple vacations spent at Hawk's Nest where your mother and father so graciously let me spend a week or two with you almost every summer … visits to your aunt's house on the Cromwell/Berlin line … just so much time that your mother was a part of. She was quite a lady and mother. Although I didn't know her later in life, I can just see her as a Red Hat Lady, kicking her heels up and causing quite a stir. :) Rest in peace, Shirl … you were loved and will be missed by many!
