I found where the two of them put out a 7-CD set that appears to be possibly spoken word of advice and music.  Debbie Boone's hit song is on it.  "God's Promises for Your Every Need".  Oddly it lists only him as the artist but her name is on the label with his.  Released in 2017.

I think they loved each other deeply and lived a beautiful life together. Such a beautiful love story. I wish him comfort and peace.

I happily admit to having been a Pat Boone fan. His voice was wonderful.  "Love Letters in the Sand" was one of his early records.  I was just a pre-teen girl, but knew what appealed to me!   

His is one of the very few show biz marriages that lasted until death parted them.  ❤️  Shirley will be missed.

Many years ago, a friend and I went to Church on the Way in Van Nuys. That was Pat Boone's church. He was there and invited some of us to his home in Beverly Hills. His daughters were young then and Pat and his wife Shirley were so nice and down to earth. Pat told us that he wrote the words to Exodus - and he sang it for us.  He let me take his pic - which I still have. It's funny but I was thinking of them just a week or two ago. I realized that I haven't seem them in a long time. So sorry about Shirley's passing. They had one very long, happy marriage.
