Those were memories she treasured.

Her children were her best friends and she spent all her time with them. They traveled to many locations and loved being together.
Shelly and Bob worked together in Real Estate and built beautiful homes that they lived in. Bob did the construction and Shelly worked hard to decorate in a beautiful fashion. When the children got older they also learned the art of construction and helped on projects. Shelly and Bob were also quite gifted team builders and worked to help many people achieve success. She and Bob divorced in later years.
