Thank you from Shirley's family for posting this in your newspaper, She Enjoyed working all those years for Briarcliff, She lived her life, saying "I'm only a Bus Driver" when people would ask what she did for a living, Little did she know at that time, HOW important her job really was and that it takes a very special person to Dive other people's children to and from school each day safely.
Last Friday I had a wonderful dream of my mom, the day of the shooting, Here she was sitting behind the wheel of the bus, she opened the door to those 20 children and their teachers, and said to them, That is was OK and it was Safe to get on the bus. I know now why God had to take her, Who else would he have chosen to take all those children to heven from School.
