Mickey, I'm so sad to read of your moms passing. These "mama's" are so special and you had one that glowed with the joy of the Lord! Her smile was always so welcoming and her sweet and kind spirit drew you in. While the void our loved ones leave behind is so painful, knowing there's a reunion like no other to come, we can "endure for a night knowing joy comes in the morning." I pray for strength and comfort in the days ahead for you and your bothers. Because He Livers, Renee' Metts

Paul and I have known Miss Shirley for only two years. She captured our attention and hearts with her sweet manners and music. Her passion for the lost and commitment to serve the Lord inspires us. Paul will dearly miss making music with Miss Shirley at David’s Fork Baptist Church. May the entire family be comforted! Miss Shirley is enjoying Heavenly praise music now! 🥰🎶

We’ve only known Ms. Shirley for about two years but she made quite an impression on us during that time. She was such a beautiful, loving, kind and Christian lady! We enjoyed her music so much at David’s Fork Baptist Church. No matter what was going on you could always count on her being at church. She continued to play faithfully during the pandemic when church was held outside . She was a very SPECIAL lady. We were blessed to have known her. May God comfort her family during this time.
