    Smiling eyes, loving heart, joyful and giving. Time cannot erase fond memories that we shared. Its been over nine years since we said goodbye at the airport in Lagos and over six years since you departed this world, still i remember you with smiles.
    Shirley, you are fondly remembered and always will be.

    William.

    It's 2011 and I've only just learned of Shirley's passing. I met Shirley in Ottawa in 1998. We spent 4 months together doing a co-op work term at Nortel. Went to lots of shows together. Ate lots of meals together. And shared each other's company. Then I ran into her in Vancouver a few years later. She was always travelling the world trying to help wherever she could. Such a breath of fresh air and so much fun. I am stunned by the the news of her passing but am pleased that she journeys on. Shirley - you are loved, celebrated and remembered. See you in the next life.

    I met Shirley, many many years ago in a small town in British Columbia called Smithers while participating in the Katimavik program. I, along with 10 other people lived for almost 3 months with Shirley. She would always make us laugh and smile and had certain way of making us see the "other point of view" trying to open the minds and broaden the horizon a couple of smartass youths who thought they knew everything.

    I'm sure that there are still pic-niks on the beach and Shoe houses in Heaven.

    Take Care Shirley

    I just realized there is a typo in the location of the memorial site my wife and I created for Shirley. Here is the corrected location details:

    On the NW 24-1-12-W2 or, Latitude 49.032597N and Longitude -103.291708W, there is a memory stone for our friend, Shirley Case. This stone is also in memory of Nicole Dial and Jacqueline Kirk, who died with Shirley.

    If you go to the website we created (http://www.shirleycase.com) you will see a Google Earth snap shot of the area. The resolution is not good.

    Shirley...has it been over 2 yrs already? You interviewed, hired and helped to train me in Banda Aceh in 2007. You offered me free hot tea and snacks in your office - so I often came there for these and to just chat. You had to be one of the most welcoming, warm people in the whole compound we had in those stressful days. I could count on you for a laugh, for some tips and for a general feeling of feeling welcome. The last time we talked, it was over carrot juice at some little lunch joint in Aceh..around Feb 2008 I believe. We were talking about career choices and your next move. You wanted to get more involved with youth, girls and education. I'm so glad you had the opportunity to do what you wanted in this life - you made it a better place for so many. Yeah, its been more than 2 yrs, but I still tear up when I think about the fact that you are not of this earth any more. If only we could have another carrot juice and a chat. See you on the other said, friend.

    Forgot to mention in our earlier post that we have created a website for Shirley that includes a picture of the location where her memorial stone is located near Torquay, Saskatchewan, Canada.

    The site is: http://www.shirleycase.com

    On the NW 23-1-12-W2 or, Latitude 49.057150N and Longitude
    -103.488257W, there is a memory stone for our friend, Shirley Case. This stone is also in memory of Nicole Dial and Jacqueline Kirk, who died with Shirley.

    The memory site is a natural native prairie area with a wonderful abundance of flora and fauna. This site is owned and protected by Shirley’s friends, Hugh and Heather Schnell, of Torquay, Saskatchewan, Canada.

    On this hill is a rock formation that marks the beginning of the spring, summer, fall and winter seasons. These markers are all aligned for the sunrises on the annual Solstice and Equinoxes. A magnetic direction marker is the center of this alignment.

    The huge stone for Shirley, Nicole and Jackie radiates the beauty just as the sun rises above the earth’s horizon. Sitting on this stone, you can see for up to 60 kilometers. The smell of the flora is intoxicating. Tears form in your eyes as you reflect and thank God for the chance to have been a small part of their lives.

    A simple card is placed that reads “Keep God smiling and laughing Shirley Case.”

    If anyone should care to visit this beautiful site, please come and visit us. We are just a stone’s throw away.

    Sincerely,

    Hugh & Heather Schnell
