  1. Shirley was a special friend to my family but most especially to my father who also lived at Regent Care Center. I enjoyed visiting with Shirley for the past four years. She loves to laugh, listen to music, eat Reece’s peanut butter cups and she always took time to pray. She really liked it when I would tell her funny stories. She would laugh so hard and I knew she was enjoying herself. I will miss my special visits with but I will never forget her. I love you, Shirley.
