Dear Children, Family and Friends of Shirley Licata:

I am very sorry to hear about the loss of such a wonderful woman. I was able to share lots of fun and happy times with her over the years, and she always gave me good advice through the years as well. Lockport has lost a most kind and blessed woman.

Big Hugs to you all,

Carmela Marie
