And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow – not even the powers from hell can separate us from God’s love.

  1. So Blessed to be in the “Pemberton Shaklee Family.” We were Friends even before
    Shaklee….attending the same church… the days before moving to Mission Viejo.
    Traveling and spending time together on Shaklee trips created such “wonderful memories”…..and deepened our Friendship!
    Always encouraging & ready to help! Shirley will be missed by so many who have
    grown to love her…..
    Love and Prayers, Jeanne, Carey & Richard

  2. Shirley will always be an inspiration, mentor, and encouragement just thinking about her and remembering how much she gave to everyone. She and Leon were so gracious to Jim and I are our first Shaklee trip to Hawaii. They invited us to their table and took us to dinner, just a small picture of the generous heart that was shared by all who knew her. We were always so blessed to be included in their Christmas celebrations in their home in years past, and will honor her with doing our best to continue passing on that love and encouragement to others.

  3. Dear Pemberton Family: We are still in disbelief that Shirley has gone on to be with our Lord! She was such a vibrant and vivacious person, full of life and joy. We essentially “grew up” with the Pembertons when we first started our Shaklee businesses over 40 years ago. Although we were in different organizations, we developed a true friendship and respect for each other. We met for lunch every month for a number of years, sharing business development ideas as well as enjoying each other’s company! Many pleasant memories remain of trips all over the world with them and will remain in our hearts and minds. Leon, please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We are praying that the Lord will provide His strength and comfort to you and your family, knowing that Shirley is with our Savior and Lord, enjoying eternal life with Him. He is our only hope and joy, knowing that someday we’ll all be with Him forever. Sorry, but we are unable to attend any of the services on Saturday as we have a previous commitment which we can not change. We will continue to pray for all of you. We love you, Howard and Jan Larew
