I know Jerry, Penny,and Mike more than Shelly and Mike. I played softball against Jerry for years and also did a lot of gutters and downspouts for all the boohers at one time or another. When we did the gutters for Shelly and Mike over off Darst, Shelly came out and offered us some drinks. She was very personable and seemed happy a lot. My dad hired Penny's Mike at Stivers High School many years ago. My prayers are for her immediate family and exstended family. Glad to here you are freinds with Pastor Siler and Cornerstone. May the Most High God, The God of Abraham,Isaac and Jacob bring much comfort and the sincere knowledge that you will reunite with Shelly in Heaven. Though she is young she left an indelible mark on a lot of kids and freinds. I'm sure she will be missed but knowing that great reunion in the heavens is a reality and though she is not in our presence anymore she will be in our future.

God bless all and comfort from the Holy Spirit. He is good at it. Much love from us to you all. Bret Mannier and family. Previous owner of Integrity Services.

Dear family of Shelly-

To live without recognizing blessings is to live without meaning. Your lives will always be full of meaning, due to the heart touches of your sweet daughter,wife,mother,sister,in law and aunt.

The heart never loses its memory and this is the cavity for which she will reside in each of you. Find comfort in knowing that this is an endless compartment for love for your blessing. We have learned this by our own losses and we know this to be true.

We send each of you love, strength and comfort.

Shelly was a special person. Never heard her say a bad word about anyone. Like some of the comments said ,we at Temple Christian were a tight knit group. I remember all the sport trips and camps we attended. Even after high school I was at Wright State with her and got to see her cheer for the Raiders.

I can tell by her Facebook page she absolutely loved her family. Saw her at another classmate's funeral and loved catching up with her.
I know you are rejoicing in heaven,but we sure miss your here.

Mike, words seem inadequate to express the sorrow felt by the loss of Shelly. My heart is with you and your family.
Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never the same.
