Shirley May (Souza) Reine
August 8 1953 - May 9 2005

1972 –2005 Shirley and Melvin have been through a lot together and she had always stood by him. I sometimes wonder if it was love or was it fear. She was devoted and faithful to him up to the day of her death. In November 2001, she was finally released from his hold, when he became ill and for the first time in her life, she was independent I’m sadden that she was afraid of that, but she had never experienced it and it was completely new to her.


I truly believe that Melvin did love her in his own way. He did take care of her, provided for her and protected her. Now Melvin is a prisoner of his own mind. Who would of ever thought this tragedy would of happened to either of them. No more Mel and no more Shirley. I can honestly say that I don't only miss my sister, I miss them BOTH.


October 20, 1999 After 27 years they became Mr. and Mrs. Melvin J. Reine Sr. Owners of Five Star Enterprises July 19, 1977 thru May 9, 2005. The business thrived for 28 years with all it's ups and downs. I feel very lost without that place in my life. It was my daily routine for almost 20 years. I miss it tremendously.
