I just now found out about Shelly's passing and wanted to send along my condolences. Time has not been a good friend to any of us, I'm sure, but I do remember some of the good times at Illinois State (penny locking and posters burning on our dorm room wall!) My prayer is that you find strength for each day and can hold on to the memories you made through your many years of marriage.
