Bob, I am going to assume that your are the family who operated the Florin Farms Orchard in the mid-1960's located in Mount Joy PA. If true, then I was blessed to have worked for you at your fruit stand along River Road (PA 441), near Rowenna PA, the summer of 1967. I want to express my sincerest condolences to you and to your family. May you sense God's love and care during this time of grief for the loss of a wife, mother, and grandmother.

Bob, Bobby, Gwenda, As I read about Shirley’s passing, I was flooded with fond memories of all of you. Bob, you and Shirley could not have been a better example to me as a young lad at his first job. You modeled and taught me many life skills that I still appreciate today. Bobby, I remember the day you were born and how proud your Mom and Dad were of you. Gwenda, I remember of your days at “Trop”, a young woman that made your Mother proud. I want to express my sincerest condolences to all of you. May you sense God's love and care during this time of grief for the loss of a wife and mother.

Thank you so much for printing Shirley's picture, I might not have know the last name, but I certainly remember that smile. She always had what I called the Campbell smile. It brought back a flood of memories of growing up in Millerstown and my dad (Skip Lauver) driving truck for Ben and Jennie. They always cared so much for the family. If memory serves me right Shirley and my brother (Ducky) went to school together and I think from time to time even got into a little harmless trouble.

My love and prayers are with the family. Cherish the memories of her life and have hope in the future that you will join her one day.
Love from the Lauver family. Mary Jane (Lauver) King
