Where do I begin.......Mrs. Morse was always kind and considerate. I doubt she ever spoke any unkind words to or about anyone. Her laughter was infectious, her smile always welcoming. She loved her family well. You are all in my thoughts and prayers❤️

I am sibling #9 and my heart is sad and happy at the same time. We are left with sweet memories and Shirley is at peace in the arms of our Heavenly Father and her family that went before her. I was the flower girl at Darrell and Shirley’s wedding. I must have succeeded because It was a role I would play many times with my other siblings. I use to go to the farm and help take care of the boys and then a girl arrived and her name is Dawn. She was the Princess and still is (love you Dawn). Family holidays were the BEST when all my sisters/brothers and nieces and nephews would arrive. Lots of laughter and love never lacked around the table with a game of Rook or Yellow 10. I have great memories to comfort me until I see my heavenly family once again. Love you all.
