Mr and Mrs. Kepler, I had the pleasure of meeting Shell at a fundraiser in portland. She was such a sweet and caring person and accepted me into her circle of friends. I was in contact with her up until the time she was in and out of the hospital. at which point I was incontact with her friend. I was shocked on friday when I recieved the call to inform me that she had passed. We had planned on having dinner in march when I was due to go back to portland. Now all we have are our memories. I know words mean nothing at a time like this but please know that she brought a smile to those that loved her. She will be greatly missed. Heaven needed another angel and she will forever be a STAR in the sky. My prayers are with you in during this difficult time. Shell. you were a real sweetheart and will be missed. GOD SPEED my friend.
