    My deepest sympathy to the Arvia family for the loss of Shirley. She was such a warm and friendly person.
    There are no words to ease the pain you’re experiencing but keep in mind she touched many lives with her beautiful voice and her kind ways. She is now at peace reunited with her beloved Jim.
