In Loving Memory

Today we put to rest Shaun's mom, Shirley Ruth Gifford (nee Spencer). She passed away suddenly on Thursday, December 4, 2008. What a beautiful bride she was and a wonderful lady who was loved by more than she knew. Spending family time this weekend brought us to the photos, and my sister-in-law found this BEAUTIFUL photo of her tucked away. It has been wonderful to spend the days listening to the boys and their Dad reminisce. During all these times with everybody around, I couldn't help but think how happy she would have been to be there. There was nothing that made her happier than to have all her family in her home visiting and talking about all the great times they had. Of course it makes me wish that we had done more of that when she was with us. She will be missed by many and remembered always.
