My sister and I would travel back to Winnipeg every summer when we were younger. Auntie Shirley and Uncle Abe were both such wonderful influences for us both. The last time I saw Auntie Shirley with my wife Karen, my mom and sister, when we were leaving Auntie Shirley squeezed my hand firmly as we left. I believe she made everyone feel special, that she had a spot for you in her heart, she does in mine.

Shirley was kind, caring and a truy giving person but I believe that what truly made her special was her willingness to listen. Whether you were sharing joy or sadness, she would be there in the moment with you. I loved sharing things with her becuase she was genuinely excited and curious to learn more about the things that brought you joy. She always wanted to learn more about the world and everything in it, which made spending time with her one of the great pleasures of my life. I will always miss her and the time I spent with her talking about the trips I planned to take, the things I was learning to cook and the hobbies I'd taken up.

These are beautiful words and a fitting tribute to an awesome person. We will cherish the memories of Aunt Shirl and hold all the family close to the heart through this period of loss. Love Cameron

While I am so sad that she is gone, I take some happiness that she is no longer in pain or discomfort. I will forever be thankful for her welcoming me into her life. She always made sure I was full of yummy food and goodies for the road too. I will forever remember all of the times we would watch cooking shows and get angry at the silly choices the chefs made! She always made sure that I knew how special I was and encouraged me to put myself first. I will always love her.
