I will always think of Shelby standing next to Janelle at the concerts we went to. Even when we were cooking in the summer sun she still had a smile on her face. My heart is with you all right now. I just want you to know we are here if you need anything at all.

There are so many memories, but I think what I will miss the most is how she would come over to hang out with us. We would have dinner and watch Disney or nature shows. Her smile that just lights up a room will never be replaced.

Shelby and I were best friends in high school after sharing multiple classes together. I remember lots of laughs and her being a great friend to me. It seemed we could talk about anything. The photo attached is from my 15th birthday in 2009. I wish we had more photos together to remember our friendship.
