Shelley Earp Aldridge

April 13, 2019

She was a very special grandmother and person. As her description notes, her sense of humor was contagious. She loved life to the fullest and loved us all. We were lucky to have her as our “grannie”. Her love of life is an inspiration to carry on. I love you grannie and will miss you here but know you are always around. Thank you for the laughs, the lessons and the love. I am fortunate
