  • Dear Family of Shirley Wooten, I am so very sorry for your loss. Mrs. Shirley was such a sweet lady. When I would come home to SC to visit, she saw me in Church, she always made me feel back at home. I have been praying for y’all since I heard she was sick and will continue to do so. I agree with Norman about Daddy and his camera. Dawn
