Shirley made a lasting impression on how you should great your work colleagues in the morning. We worked together at Cooper, White & Associates in Pukekohe in the early 1980s. It was my first job after leaving school. Everyday without fail Shirley would great us with a brilliant smile and "good morning". In response to the standard question "how are you today Shirley" she would respond "box of birds.......... dead ones" and then laugh. Shirley had a wonderful way of making everyone feel happy and valued. A special lady. My deepest sympathies to Kevin, Grant and your families.
