  1. Sure will miss Don and Shirley. They was very kind to me when I needed a place to stay over night sometimes when things at home were rough. Shirley could cook up a meal for me and Don when I visited. Don and I would go “hacking” at the golf course in Bicknell on our days off. I still think I hit a ball off in the woods one morning. Looked and looked never did see where it went. I think Don had a ball in koi his hand and tossed it on the ground right beside where I had the tee off. He said there it is!
    I knew the rest of Shirleys family as well. I liked Bernie and Big Ethel, as I used to call her. Bernie had to retire from Brouilletts after his eyes got bad. Ethel was also very kind and a long time member of the church. All of them were very kind people. They cheered me up on some of the gloomiest days. Peace be with those who have survived in the days and weeks ahead. Take the time, when you miss Shirley and Don. Pray and remember the good times. Sometimes this ugly world just irritates me so much I have to say the Lord’s Prayer to myself or try my memory at the 23rd psalm.
