Let’s get comments in on how crazy it is we have this scoring system that determines our standard of living. Anyone with low credit score can tell you, it s#cks.Fortunately, it is possible to fix this with credit repair.Many people have been able to improve their credit score by repairing their credit with help from hacker, Harold Chalov. He began with my credit at 485 in 2019, a year in, I’m at 806. If you want the help of a professional financial expert, contact haroldchalov@gmail

Shirley was a wonderful co-worker & friend. I will always remember our first meeting at S & S and the advice she gave me. Will always remember going together to a reception for Gubernatorial candidate Jake Butcher at his Residence ‘Whirlwind' & the trips to Gatlinburg & Fall Creek Falls when Chris & Ashley were small. Do you guys remember all the geese on that trip? Prayers for all the family. May you feel God's peace and comfort.

It was certainly an honor to have known Shirley for many years through genealogy and patriotic organizations. She was always so kind and helpful and such a joy to be with. I wish the family peace to bring you comfort, courage for the days ahead, loving memories to forever hold in your hearts and healing in the promise of everlasting life.

I went to Gallatin schools with Shirley. She was always so sweet and kind. My heart is heavy for her family and I will be praying for each of you at this difficult time. May God surround you with His love.

I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to know Shirley and call her my friend. We met through genealogy only to find out we were distantly related. Shirley was such a kind/sweet person. She will be missed. May God give each of you strength and comfort for the days and weeks ahead.

I knew Shirley from high school as she was in the class behind me. Our paths crossed again when I was working at Vol State in the Continuing Education Department and Shirley was hired to teach non credit accounting classes. She always had a calm and quiet sweetness. I’m sorry to hear that she has passed. I wish her family love peace and comfort in the days ahead.

Yes, I agree with everyone’s description of Shirley–She was tops in her class at school and always kind, friendly and caring. I am so sorry to learn of this loss.

I just want to leave this out there!
If you have credit issues, send an email to, haroldchalov@gmail, you’ll thank me later.
With 3 late payments, many negatives, and a couple collections, life for me was a daily struggle in every way. I decided i had to enlist the help of a credit repair hacker, that’s when i found Harold Chalov. So many encouraging comments popped up in respect of him on quora and youtube, so i thought to myself, why not!? I decided to give it a shot. It truly turned out to be the best decision i ever made in my adult life. Harold was able to raise my score to 788 in less than 9 days, and cleared off all collections on my report. Harold Chalov fully gave me a new life, and control over my credit. That’s the professional you should be talking to if you need help with your credit.

Never met any hacker as discreet and fast like this Whitecollar Hackers. He's called TRUCE and he has helped me in multiple ways first was when my ex wife cheated on me and now he's helping me paying my credit cards debts. I must say he's the best at what he do and I recommend him to the world. Email; WhitehatstechAtgmailDotcom , you can be sure to thank me later.
