    If possible, please include the following condolence to be sent to family.

    Sincere Sympathy and condolences on the passing of your dear wife and mother, Shirley. As I read the obituary, I remembered the “happy” times at your farm in West Lawrencetown and how kind Shirley and you were to us – allowing our then four “little” daughters have the thrill of riding for the first time! Byran and Muriel ‘s daughter Margo and son Byran alerted me to Shirley’s obituary in the Herald. May the joy and peace of Christmas be with you all as you suffer this great loss.

    Sincerely.

    Doreen Mac Donnell, Sydney

    Roddie, Marie, and Nancy, and all your family,
    It is truly sad to hear of Shirley’s passing. Shirley was the epitome of poise and calm. Having worked alongside of her at so many shows, including eight of the ten Westphal shows at the Robertson spread, I and the rest of East Coast Ring Crew are saddened by this news. When you bumped into her anywhere you received this warm smile as if she was saying “Ah, there’s another one of my flock coming in.” She gave kind advice and encouragement to all she met. So many, besides her family, will miss her.

    Roddie and family, so sorry for your loss. I will always treasure the wisdom Shirley taught me as I worked under her stewarding at shows. She was a great lady and I am honoured to have worked with her.

    I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Shirley. She was a wonderful lady and I have such fond memories of her at all of the horse shows, especially Wesphal! She was such a huge part of the horse show world and contributed so much with all of her knowledge. My thoughts are with you at this time.

    My sincere thoughts and sympathy on your recent loss. I was saddened to hear the news as it was a pleasure to have met Mrs Robertson the few times that I did. She was dearly loved and cared for in all ways. My thoughts go out to Mr Robertson as theirs was a love that was truly seen. Thank you for allowing me to meet this wonderful lady and her husband. My thoughts with you all at this time
