"Hello family of Shirley--this is a voice out of the past when I remembered meeting Shirley and Bob who were 4 or 5 years older than me while students at our little two-room school house in Bryant. Shirley had the sweetest smile and spirit. We knew that Shirley and Bob were sweethearts from the get go. Who says young love can't last!! Janet (Rosio) Schoblaska"
