We are thinking about your family at this time. Shirley was one of the people that convinced me to meet Bill. We attended their 25th wedding anniversary as our blind date. My favorite memory was this: I was doing her hair in my salon, Bart was there visiting his Mom, She was trying to get him to go do something and he resisted. She hopped out of the beauty-shop chair, reached up and grabbed his earlobe and pulled him through the swinging doors. I was absolutely astonished- Bart did as she asked !! It still makes me smile." Bubbles" will be missed. So sorry for all of you and your families.

To the Householder Family. We send our condolences for the loss of your mom, Shirley. We would have been there today but the border from Canada to the U.S. is closed so our thoughts are with all of you. RIP Shirley.
