RE: Shirley Johnson
I'm sorry, I do not know her story, but now, reading the inscription, I would like to know.
I lived in Del Rio years ago, working in the Qualia's 'Butcher Boy' grocery store near the old downtown. I lived near there, walking to work along streets lined with pecan trees, and being very surprised that Texas has such freezing cold winters. I met lots of people at the store, and enjoyed talking to the ranch wives and manly men. Those were the days. I will never forget the first time someone put a pig's head on my check-out counter! I had never seen that before and was pretty startled by those cloudy pig eyes staring back at me through the saran wrap. Oh, my.
I have since tried to remember some names from those days and that naturally led me to the local cemeteries. Kind of a want to know, but don't want to find out situation. I thought Shirley's name sounded familiar, and was hoping for a clue if she had a headstone.
I swore at the time that I hated living there, but I would sure love to see it all again.

Lucky you, living away from big cities that I can't wait to escape from. Maybe I'll move back to Texas!
