We are saddened to hear of Mrs. Shirley's passing. She was our friend for over 20 years of hosting our annual fall hunting trips at the campground. Mrs. Shirley was devoted to her family and helped anyone that needed it. She made the best pies in the country! Condolences to Gary, Shawn, Doug, Ericka, Kris and the grandchildren.

AS THE OLD SAYING GOES "GOD BROKE THE MOLD AFTER HE CREATED MRS. SHIRLEY!" SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY ONE OF A KIND. A REMARKABLE LADY. WE WILL GREATLY MISS HER. THE VISITS WHILE STAYING AT CAMP AND THE REGULAR TELEPHONE CALLS CHECKING ON US. EACH DAY WILL BE DIFFERENT FOR ALL THOSE SHE TOUCHED. BUT COMFORT COMES TO EACH TO KNOW WE HAVE SOMEONE WAITING TO GREET US. BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW SHE IS WITH OUR FATHER. SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE MRS. SHIRLEY! KENNY AND KATHY
