Andy and family: My memories of Shirley go back to the 4th grade. A pretty girl with black hair and freckles. She was a classmate of mine and she and Andy were a natural couple. Both really nice people. Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss.

Dear Andy and family, We are sorry to hear of your loss of Shirley. We were playmates on Sampson St. in Fisherville (now South Grafton MA). We were "cowboys" and our horses were the railings on her back porch. Aline and Ed. Mahoney
