I must tell you that I was so excited to see this image of Mr. Shirey. My grandmother's brother, Leo Robert, was 8 years old when he
and a friend left Mr.Shirey's store, then, moments later heard a gun shot. Mr. Shirey had been murdered. I am 54 years old, and I am
writing a story about my grandmother and my memorable trips to Minturn. Mr. Shirey's tall headstone could be seen from my Grandmother's kitchen window. I cannot express how grateful I am to have found his picture. Mr. Shirey has become a remembered soul in our
family. I'm pretty much overwhelmed. Sincerely, Karla Doyle (Grand
daughter of Ernest & Edna Robert Bennett) .
