I can only say that the world would be a much better place if there were more people in it like Shirley Buice. She was a strong christian woman who kept her faith, fought the good fight and finished her course (2 Timothy 4:7). She was always kind and loving towards me and my family and i am thankful to have been able to of known her. I look forward to seeing her again one day in heaven because i know with out a doubt she is there. 2 Corinthians 5:6-8. May GOD bless and comfort the Buice family in this time of loss.
