Shirley first met Bob Williamson in Eldora Iowa when they were in the first grade together. Shirley’s family eventually moved to Minneapolis but they kept in touch, and Shirley faithfully wrote to Bob during the war.
Shirley trusted in Jesus Christ as her savior while she was in Minneapolis and at the same time Bob received Christ as his savior while in the navy, and their letters telling each other crossed in the mail.
