Kyle & Becky,
My condolences to you and all of your family on the loss of your mother. I remember how much fun she was and even after she became ill she displayed such a positive attitude. I'm sure you will all miss her but you are lucky kids to have had her as your mom.

Sue,
Tim and I did not know Shelley, but in knowing you, believe she must have been a beautiful person and an inspiration to those around her. I cannot find the words to express our deepest sympathy in the loss of your sister. May God be with you in your time of sorrow. I know he will watch over Shelley.

Shelley was such an inspiration to everyone who knew her. She had a genuine love of life which I believe was deeply rooted in the love of her family and her faith in God. May we all be so fortunate as to have a little of that joy and peace while here on earth. I cannot help but to think that she has to be dancing with Jesus and making God laugh til He cries! Shelley, live in peace, I'm sure you'll never slow down enough to rest!
