Aunt Shirley (as I call felt blessed to call her) was a very special lady. I met her through Wendell (Glenn) Pugh and she and James made my family and I feel so welcomed each time we visited their home. We are military and have since moved to Japan but she was just the type of Lady that made you feel like family which is a rare thing. She will be sorely missed and the Baker family sends our heartfelt condolences to all of her loved ones and friends.
