    I’m so sorry to hear about Shelly’s passing. I wish I had gotten to know her better over the last few years as she was a fine cousin always. I remember fun memories when we were younger and all the cousins would get together. Also as she was working at jobs going through college. May you rest in peace. Tim Woodford

    My husband was a neighbor and remembers her family and her well. I went to school with her but was a year older so just knew who she was at that time. My sympathy goes out to her family and friends that knew her well.
