To Shelby's Family, please accept my condolences.
I have always admired Shelby....I thought she was strikingly beautiful. She was kinda quiet, like her father...my Uncle Mike.
I loved all the pictures posted on this site!! The ones of inside her home when she was growing up, remind me of the precious times I would visit there and witness the Daily routine of "passing the mop" on the beautiful wooden floors, dusting everything, making lunch for Uncle Mike to come home from work to eat...all the house work was done by noon. The only day that it was not done, was on Sunday, when everyone went to Mass. I Love All my Dooley family!
"For those who have been faithful, O Lord, life is not ended, but merely changed, and when this earthly abode dissolves, an eternal dwelling place place awaits them in heaven"

To all the Family of Mrs Shelby,
I am so sorry to hear of her passing.
She was Jewel in our eyes and mother to
us all growing up. No words can take away
the hurt you all are feeling right now.
But know we are praying for all of you that
God heal the hurt with his love.
I am so sorry I could not make it to the
funeral. Please forgive me.
My health won't allow me to
go any where.
But my heart is with you even still.
Love and miss you all.
