Rest in Peace sweet Shirley, give Millie a big hug from us!! Love you, Bonnie Klaman Liermann & Marjorie Way ( Millie Blakley's sisters )

When I was younger, I used to come to the Blakely Family Reunions with my Grandma, Eva McKittrick. As I got older, I didn't go anymore and many years passed.

Then, as I was at my Grandma McKittrick's funeral and watching the video of her life, a lady comes up beside me and begins asking me many questions about the people in the video/photos. After enjoying much time spent explaining and and conversing, it was apparent that her interest was beyond that of a stranger. The person who had been talking to me was Shirley.

It was nice to be able to talk with her that day and share some family ties. I had a very pleasant visit with her. I know my Grandma would have been smiling down on us.
