My sincere condolences to the family. Its so sad to loose your Mom, Grandmother and Matriach of your family. I have many memories of Aunt Shirley when I was young especially when we all lived on School St. I also remember her paintings she always did a Christmas Scene on a big mirror in our living room. I hope your memories of her warm your hearts during this difficult time. Much Love, Cousin Linda Armitage Coutinho
