I was so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I always had a great deal of respect and warmth for her. Any time I would see her - no matter how many years had passed - she always embraced me with a warm hug. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I understand the rawness of losing your mom - we just laid my mom, Lillian Griffioen, to rest earlier this month. I will be thinking of you on Friday and sending prayers of strength!

Dear Brothers John and Marc, So sorry to hear of Shirley’s passing. I just heard it at church this morning from John Sikkenga. The memory I have is being the third Shirlee( mine was spelled different) on South Burdick with me being the youngest. Thru the years I would see her at Christian school events. Lots of fond memories! My sincere sympathy. Shirlee Durian Gernaat

Dear Family of Shirley, We wish to let you know we are sorry for your loss. “Mrs. Breedveld”, as I knew her growing up at Greenwood as all wonderful memories. She was great mom who helped all the kids at church. She would take Kay & myself to camp Geneva many times. The fun times we had. Looking back now as an adult I see she had great faith. You can see her faith though her children. Your wife and mother was a very special woman as you know. Our prayers are with all of you. Sincerely Jill &Mark Shadley
