A Beautiful Spirit

Andrée Verville

I met Shirley in October 2010, when she took photos of my then airedale terrier Maia. When Maia passed in May 2012 (4 years old), I told Shirley that her touching photos got me through a very rough period. To this day, I find solace and joy in those photos.

They have now taken on a new and special meaning since Nov 14. I did not know Shirley intimately, but enough to know what a caring person she was, and enough to realize how very loved she was. Her beautiful spirit will live on in her body of work, and in the hearts of those she loved and who loved her.

Blessed to have met you, dear Shirley.
