All my friends are gold to me.
Once in a while you meet one who becomes a real jewel.
Someone who has the special place in your heart.
Someone who shines above the others.
I have been so lucky in my life to have met a few of those jewels.
I lost one of those Jewels today.
Shirley (Lil Red) Harty.
I met Shirley at our pig roast she came as a date to one of our friends.
She became some one I loved.
Her joy of life and of the people she loved.
Her compassion and caring for everyone even when she was going through hell herself.
She was always there for a friend always strong and loving.
Her character was something to be admired and she touched every persons life who had the fortunate luck to meet her.
Shirley you are one of the diamonds in my life and the lives of many other.
You will always shine in our hearts and minds even though you are gone.
We love and miss your spirit and light.
