  4. i am so sorry for your loss, shirlene had a special place in my heart. when we worked at semo ctc together she always took care of me and made sure i had something to eat with my restricted diet. made me (a non smoker) go on smoke breaks with her. and then later when i got to see her every year at tax time. she was truely a special lady and will always be one of my few favorite "old broads" i will miss you my friend.

  5. I worked at SEMO CTC as well with Grandma. She was a hoot! She always cooked great and took care of the staff with her extra pans of rolls that melted in your mouth. She will be missed but not forgotten.
