Shirley Sommers, known to us as scooterbug joined us on June 16,2003. She was active in many forums and had friends throughout the community.
Scooterbug was taken from us suddenly on the 18th of December and she will be greatly missed. From the 'Coffee' threads in the Parking Lot to animal advice in the Pets Forum, she was an active and vital part of the community and leaves many dear friends behind.
My condolences to the family. I had received a rather terse and succinct dmail stating she had gone to see God,but it was unsigned and I was unable to establish any authenticity and was reluctant to comment beyond our Coffee thread in the event it was not a genuine message.
Scooterbug has given me so many laughs over the years with her quick wit. Her involvement with her beautiful German Shepherds endeared her to me even more. She was always sending the cutest e-cards and thoughtful e-mails. She brightened the world and I will always remember her with a smile. Shine on Shirley. You were a beautiful lady inside and out.
I will miss you.
So sorry to hear of Shirley's death. She will be greatly missed. I commented that she needed to check in more on the coffee...and thread, and she said that she was a confirmed lurker, but she would chime in with advice, or with a witty joke from time to time.
Scoots how cherished my memories of you are. When I first joined dg I was so lucky to have met you.Go now in peace and get the prosperty one wants for across the rainbow bridge. We will miss you on this side.Ps while GS were never my breed you had beautiful ones and you did so well with them.
Melody, this is shocking to me.
Kris, Laura, you, Darius and Sandra are on her f/b friends and I'm seeing it now for this post here. The last posting there was on Dec.17. This is unfortunate she is no longer with us. She had sent me a book on Birds which will be more cherished now. May her soul rest in peace.
I tried adding her as a friend, thinking a family member might be maintaining the account as so many do, so I could send her family condolences; her account wasn't set up to accept messages from people who weren't her friends there.
I too was so sad to hear about Shirley's death. She has been a friend for a long time. We corresponded a lot concerning her hoped for move to TN and afterward as she got settled in. We shared a love for German Shepherd dogs and she gave me much badly needed advice with our last two GS dogs that are now living in E TN with my granddaughter. I hadn't gotten any emails from her lately in reply to my inquiry and wondered what was wrong. I will remove her from my email list and my address book with sorrow as she will be sorely missed.
