Sunday morning coffee with my mom Pam and Donna. Shelly was the only other woman besides my mom that whipped my butt. She stood up to the saying “dynamite comes in small packages”. She treated like her own kids. (It was still JD and Tandy that did it..😊) She also loved us like her own. I will never forget the last time we talked she told me she was proud of me. She was a very special lady and will be missed. Prayers to her family.

There are no words to describe the strength Shelly had. She taught me that dying doesnt have to be a bad or feared experience. She went out "Shelly style." I will always have a place in my heart for her to keep her near.

Shelly was a great friend. She was someone I could confide in and she would never let the cat out of the bag. But if I was wrong she wasn’t ever afraid to set me straight. I laughed with her and cried with her she was my friend and I will miss her. Peace and prayers be with all of you.

My best memories was living with Shelly in Gordon. We had a lot of fun and laughed a lot. We became very close during that time and she was my best cousin ever! I'm also very sad for all the family. Shelly will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure to know and love her.
