I have opened this thread so that all Shirley's friend's can post photographs and messages about their visit's to her resting place,if they so wish.It will also be a place where I can update any photo's and also any further development of the renovations at the cemetery.There has already been a considerable improvement since Shirley was laid to rest,I am told there will be more.If you click on the link you will see how much progress has been made already.

Re: Shirley's Resting Place

I've got a funny feelıng that Shırley ıf stıll wıth us would do the same for anyone of us here,she was that sort of Lady.I've spoken wıth a few people sınce Shırley past away who knew her,the storıes they tell.She was kınd and generous wıth her tıme and help.She dıdnt suffer fools gladly.She could take 3 layers of skın off you wıth her tongue at 20 paces.Shırley was ındeed well loved here on TLF and also here ın Alanya.bless her.

Re: Shirley's Resting Place

Hi Folks. At last, I found my password to get back on TLF. A lot of things have happened for me whilst not being on TLF, the main one being, I have moved house,agaın. They say it is one of the most stressful things that people go through in their lives and I can confirm that is so true. But on the good side, it's surprising how much stuff you find, you thought you had lost.
Just before moving, I made a video of new directions of how to get to Shirley's Resting Place, as I had lost the others, due to deletıng them from Tınypıcs, and I had to delete the Youtube video due to copywriter of some of the music.
In their wisdom, Alanya council decided to build a new dual-carriageway straight through Alanya and cutting off the road to the Yabanci Cemetery. This has been a real problem for the families of those buried up there. So most of the first part of the journey is unfamiliar to some that have been before. I normally go up about once a month now and the part that Shirley is in is now full. There was also some sad news a few months ago told to me by Lesley (Sunny Seasider) that Yusef had passed away, sad news indeed. I have looked in the main part of the cemetery but couldn't find his grave, maybe he is buried elsewhere. But they are together now, bless them both. Shirley's grave is overrun by a plant that Yusef planted and no matter how much its cut back it grows at a rapid rate but still looks beautiful. A link to the video is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iiqFBR_vHnc&t=27s.Hope you enjoy it and I will post info and pictures if any changes are made. I know ıts a few of years sınce the passıng of Shırley and the collectıon made by TLF members held by our Mushtaq, has any been donated? (except for the bench). One thıng I have forgotten ıs the plaque for Shırleys bench. I wıll be makıng one as I now have my own workshop and wıll post pıcs of ıt when done. Good to be back.

Re: Shirley's Resting Place

Welcome back and thank you very much for the update. Sad news indeed about Yusuf, but as you say, reunited with Shirley.

Re: Shirley's Resting Place

Thanks Trev for the update.

I still have 395 left from the collection, Trev has indicated that he has no further need for the funds in relation to Shirley's final resting place.

Can I have some suggestions please as to how best to use the remaining funds?

Thanks for the update Mushtaq.

Could the remaining funds be donated in Shirley & Yusuf's names to local children/charities, in goods & products?

I'm with you all the way on this suggestion tintagel. I was trying to make a similar suggestion but couldn't put it in the same format that you have. I contributed to this fund and have to say I was heartbroken when so little of it was spent. I don't want to detract from what trev did (it was action not words) We have one or two people on this forum who knew Shirley and Yusuf personally. I suggest Mushtaq should pick their brains for ideas. The money was collected for Shirley and should be spent in her name.
RIP Shirley and Yusuf.

Re: Shirley's Resting Place

Could we not donate the remaining funds to Shirley's local bar, I was in there with her 2 nights before she sadly passed and will be back there on Thursday, I could call Trevor and I'm sure we could look after it.

Re: Shirley's Resting Place

Shirley's son Mike and his girl friend Sue sent me a message in June this year, saying they were coming to Alanya and would love to visit Shirley's grave. I took them up to the cemetery, he was very emotional when I explained about the s shaped seat at the graveside. He left a lamp on the grave, so anyone wondering where it came from it was Shirley's son Mike that left it there.

Thank you Bashful, I felt able to offer a suggestion as I too contributed to Shirley's fund.

Maybe those who knew Shirley personally would like to make some suggestions about where the monies should go. With the current rate of exchange it's a tidy sum in TL, which I'm sure will be gratefully received.

TNT, thank you very much for all you've done, it's much appreciated. And it's good to see you back posting again
