Shirlene was a young woman who dedicated her short life to caring for others.
A brilliant doctor and beloved friend – Shirlene will be missed.
Hudson will miss his many pats and cuddles from Shirlene, during his Campbelltown Hospital visits.
A poem dedicated to Shirlene by her colleagues and friends at
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path that was laid out for me
I took his hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left it all
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found that place at close of day
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Ah yes, these things I too will miss
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you sunshine of tomorrow
My life’s been full, I’ve savoured much
Good friends, good times,
A loved one’s touch
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief
Lift up your heart and share with me…..
My time was up, he wanted me
He set me free.
