      Thank you Shirley. She was my best friend. We did so much together. Went to concerts, shopped, out to eat and so much more. I smile when I think of all the good times she and I had. I would take her to Walnut Creek to a concert and push her in her wheel chair. She didn’t want to use the wheel chair but it was too far for her to walk. Hope you and Murphy are doing well. I miss seeing you all. Take Care.
