Dear family of Shelby's,
Shelby was one of my dearest friends in elementary school. We spent many nights together giggling and picking on our brothers. Although our paths took different directions I have always thought of her with great fondness. With great sadness I've watched her years of struggle through our facebook connection and now that I've heard of her passing my heart feels an even greater sadness. Rest high on that mountain, Shelby, you've earned it. My deepest sympathy to all of you. Big hugs.
