Peters, Shirley M.'s Guestbook

Shirley was one of my favorite customers at Trails West Public Library. She would always visit with me about her family and about what was going on in my family. She had been coming into our library for a long time. Shirley was a very nice person and we will all miss her at the KC Public Library. Thoughts and prayers to Shirley's family!

I will miss seeing this dear sweet loving lady at Graceway every Sunday. No matter what she was always there and always had a smile on her face. She will be greatly missed. See you in heaven Shirley!!!

We are saddened to hear of Shirley's passing. We enjoyed knowing her and Joe as great grandparents to our grandson Miles. Our sympathies and love go out to Matt, Suzee, and the Peters family.
