    To the Family of Shirley Bishop:

    It was quite q shock to learn about Shirley’s sudden passing. I am a golf buddy of her and grown very fond of her and her wit whenever we played golf together. I have missed her during the past 3 years when she chose to take a break from playing golf. May the memories of Shirley sustain you during this difficult time for you.

    My sincere condolences and prayers,

    Helene “Len” Tate

    Steve, Brian and family,
    You guys have been on my mind so much since I found out about your mom and I just can’t imagine what you must be going through at this time. Ms. Shirley was such a joy to be around. Always smiling. Although life has taken us all to different places in life you and you family are fondly thought of often. I wish I could have come back to Nashville to have told you in person. Prayers and blessing to you all.
