Shirley Talyor's Family - Sincere condolences to all of you. Shirley was a joy to work with. She always brought humor to the bus garage. Her smile was infectious. She always knew the perfect "one liner" to fit any uproar at the bus garage. She was just "The Best". May she fly with the angels to a most deserving place in Heaven.
