    My thoughts are with you all during this most difficult transition. I smile as I remember all the fun times we had with Shelly and the rest of the cousins- Suzie, Nancy, Ricky and Chipper- particularly as children, then teenagers at our family gatherings during the holidays, As I remember the young, vibrant Shelly of those crazy days it is hard to imagine her now gone, but now resting in peace with Ricky, Uncle Don and Aunt Jeanne. Love to you all, Caroline Connelly

    Dear Kristan, I have many fond memories of you and your mother during our Girl Scout days. Love and prayers for you and your whole family as you grieve the loss of your wonderful Mother. Love, Robin

    We were saddened to hear you have lost Shelly far too soon. Prayers and thoughts have been with you since this news came earlier this week. I had hoped to be there, but not feeling too well, so thought it best to stay at home. You have all been on my mind this afternoon and will pray with you during her 4:00 service. It was wonderful to see all the photos and see once again that wonderful smile I most remember about Shelly during our first ten years or so, when we spent time together. Love to all the family, Julie Caron Sims
