"Shirley was a bright light for so many while she worked at Kmart. I remember her leaving at night with her hand tucked into the arm of one of the young men that worked there. They thought they were helping her, but she was giving them words of encouragement and the knowledge that someone cared for them. She will always be one of my favorite Kmart family members."
