I saw this photo you posted and facebook with the family pics in the background. You were going to help me with the family tree book I am working on with the Shelly Side of the family. I never got the chance to get together with you as this dreaded disease took you too soon. I hope all that see this picture of you with family on the walls will know what a loving family person you were. You will be missed!
