Just learned of Shirley's passing. I'm so sorry for your loss. Your mom and dad were such important people in the Albright girls lives as well. They are remembered fondly. Love you all

Jae, Jad, Logan and Collin we are so very sorry for your loss. Both Glenn and Shirley were always so good to me after my mother's (Joyce Herbel) passing in 1986. They welcomed me into their home and your lives while I did my internship throughout college. For this, I will be forever grateful. My family will be praying for all of you during this time. May God bless each and every one of you!
All my love
