    Our condolences to the family. Kaelyn and I had the privilege to visit Shirley over the last two years while headed to Notre Dame. Patrick and I met Ken and Shirley in Chicago July of 2005. I fell in love with the both at that time. Shirley will be dearly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the rest of the family.
