My sincere condolences on the passing of Miss Shirley. I have only fond memories growing up watching my parents Paul and Eva Northern party with Miss Shirley and Mr. Brown. They enjoyed life. Her and my mother talked on the phone all the time and I would drive my mother over to visit with them in Portsmoth and Suffolk. May she rest in heaven reunited again with all her loved ones and friends. God bless. Michele Northern McCoy
