I am so saddened to learn of this lovely lady's passing. The Jackson Family was my second family - and I think they loved me as much as I loved them. Shirley and Tom, I am so sorry for your loss. While I was so fortunate as to have your Mother as my teacher and your Dad as my first employer, you two had such exemplary parents who I was privileged not just to know but to share with you. Please know I will keep you in my prayers and I love you both. I share your belief that your parents are now in heaven watching over us all. Much love to you!

I had the privilege to be one of many student teachers Ms. Shirley had through the years. She taught me so much that one doesn't get from books. Because of her, I went on to teach 36 years in the parish. She will truly be missed!

I am going to miss you tremendously Ms. Shirley. You were such a sweet and loving Christian lady. My sympathy is extended to your son and daughter and all of your family. There is no doubt that you are now around the throne of God singing with the angels. My love to you and your family. Ann Benton I wish I was physically able to attend the funeral
