I want to offer mine and my families deepest condolences to the family. Shelly was all that was stated and more. I remember her growing up and from then I knew she would be a bright and shinning light in this world. Nothing about her involvement and accomplishments would surprise me. She was funny, witty and was never at a lost for words and this was before she was even in her teens. I remember her strolling through the parking lot with a bag of candy and looking as if she owned the world. Lots of confidence as a young girl and I am sure that she perfected this in a positive way in her adult life. She was a little sister just like Crystal is to me whom I love enormously! I truly am sorry for your loss and understand all to well the next leg in your journey to heal. Please know that there is a God who promised to never leave us and that He would be with us until the end of the age. We are here for you all. K.I.
