remembering a great friend

We are very deeply saddened to say that last Sunday, March 24th, we lost one of our beloved friends, Lady Shirley.  Whenever she was around, you were sure to see a smile on her face, no matter what; the kind that made you want to smile too.   We appreciate and will always cherish the beautiful artwork she did for us, hanging in the castle ballroom. Shirley is greatly missed by all who knew her.

                                                           Dame Donna and Lady Shirley
