    What a blessing Shirley was in my life and in the lives of all of us here at Regions Bank. Shirley had an incredibly positive attitude and spirit and was a joy to be around. She took amazing care of our clients and was such a dedicated employee and wonderful friend. She brightened every day with her smile and her humor. We miss her so much but will cherish every memory we have of our time spent together. Shirley was a blessing in my life –truly a treasure.

    You were always there for me. Not just a sister, but a mother and best friend. More than that, you were a second mother to my children and another sister to my husband. Every time we’d see each other, our excitement ran high as we saw each other and tears fill as we parted. Whether we were near or far apart, our hearts remained connected. I remember the many times we surprised each other with unexpected visits and the glow that followed us around as we caught up on the little moments that make life so beautiful. Sure we would fight but boy, sometimes we needed space away from each other but we’d always cried and made up because we couldn’t imagine our lives with out each other in it. I still can’t imagine it, but God is
    so good and I know you’re looking
    down telling me to go eat some pan
    dulce and tamales. You’re now
    walking those roads of gold we spoke
    about, and one day I’ll be there
    too, ready to laugh with you again.
    I love you and remain thankful for
    the many years I had with you. I
    love you always, my Loca hermana.
    And yes I’ll eat some pan dulce and
    tamales.

    I met Shirley 17 years ago at First American Bank. I was truly blessed to call Shirley my friend. We shared some wonderful times together. Shirley was so very wise beyond her years. She would do anything for you in good and bad times. We had so much in common, we both shared a deep love for our families. Shirley would tell me of her childhood and young adulthood, married to the love of her life and so very blessed with her children. I feel I know each of you personally. Shirley was such a kind, loving and giving individual. Please know that her family and friends remain in my prayers for peace, joy and understanding as you daily remember your lives with Shirley. May your memories of Shirley bring a smile to your face and a warmth in your heart for the privilege to know and love such a wonderful lady. She is truly missed.

    I had the privilege of working with Shirley for a number of years. I always looked forward to each encounter with her. Her infectious smile and positive attitude lifted everyone’s spirit whom was fortunate enough to cross her path. On a personal note, she also had a way with animals; I had a dog named “Russell” which I gave to Shirley, due to my complete lack of ability to train him. In short order she had him completely trained and, he became a beloved member of her family. While I was happy for Russell, I was completely bemused by the ease with which Shirley completed this task. She was, indeed, blessed with a winsome personally and ability to positively impact those around her.

    We all can only hope to have such a positive impact on those around us as did Shirley Sills. May God be with the family and friends during this time of remembrance and honor for the life of such a special person.

    I met Shirley at Fox Tech High School in 1967 when we were both 17 years old. We had several classes together and became good friends. We had a blast in school. She was very funny. As the years past, our friendship continued and we kept in touch. Every time we would see each other, we would pick up where we left off. We would continue with out Tex Mex and she loved it. I think I went to visit her and her family in every state she lived in and I mean she moved around. Whenever she came into town, she would come see me as well. I Have fond memories of my friend and I thank God for putting her in my life. She was very kind and generous. I will never forget her and I consider myself very fortunate for having her as my friend.
