Toward the end of that spectacular Sunday evening, Debbi and one of their daugthers left Jerry, Ed and me amidst the strikingly beautiful balloons and stood in the funnel cake lines. The funnel cakes—unhealthy things that they are— were scrumptious.
Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 81 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 64 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)
