I am deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Shelby. She was a dear friend of Zach Craft and his best buddy Nick Williams (may Nick RIP). I knew her well and will miss her dearly. These things are never easy to write, and with a heavy heart I extend my deepest condolences to the entire family during this dark time. When you see a star in the dark sky that is shinning very bright, it is her looking down upon all of us, watching us, and smiling. Shelby will always be in my heart and thoughts. God needed another angel and he picked you. Rest well little lady.

Dear Kelly and Tom,
Words could not describe the hurt and compassion can not remove the pain. One thing for sure is how wonderful the two of you got to be her parents. Only special parents get to see their child received by Christ! You both were wonderful parents at best. You raised a wonderful compassionate daughter like the two of you! Be assured that relatives we're waiting to walk her into Heaven as the Angels we're singing to make her greetings more beautiful than we can imange. You both, and the rest of the family will be in my prayers. If their is anything I can do just let me know!
