Gloria Shaffer Tannenbaum - 15 days ago

Dear Family, I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of my friend Shirley. We became close friends in elementary school (Alfred Joyce) and sustained a wonderful warm friendship throughout our high school and college days. She was beautiful, generous of spirit and fun-loving. We made magical memories together that I will cherish for a lifetime. While our paths veered in different directions, she never forgot my birthday (nor I hers) and we celebrated each other every year. She loved her family beyond everything else. My sincerest condolences to all. May her memory forever be a blessing to the entire family. Baruch Dayan Emet.
