My Aunt Shirley Stone, was one of the best persons on the face of the earth. She was always there for our family growing up. When my Dad was ill and had to stay in the hospital she would bring my grandmother and they would stay as long as needed to care for me and my two sisters. She always put others first, especially her mother who she cared for her entire life. I will always remember going in their kitchen to smell chicken frying in the electric skillet or the smell of that homemade chocolate lard cake. My only regret with my Aunt Shirley is that I didn't visit these last years. I am truly sorry!!! Love you always, till me meet in heaven!
