Our sincere sympathy to the family of Shirley Lohkamp. Shirley and I were 2nd cousins and have been life-long friends. We also worked together at Harrisonville Telephone Company. I will always remember Shirley's sweet smile and her caring personality. We actually retired on the same day in December, 2004. I am so sorry that I did not know Shirley was ill with Cancer. I would have wanted to offer any support to her. Blessings to the family and we will be praying for you to have strength in your loss. May God Bless all of you. - Gary and Audrey Loos, nee Henke.

I am so sorry for your loss. Shirley and I worked together at Harrisonville Telephone Company for 17+ years. She always made me smile and was a great co-worker. We had many good times together. Sadly we didn't keep in touch after she retired. Please accept my sincerest sympathies. I know she will be missed.
