Just remember when Amber broke Shelby’s 100 breaststroke record of 1.11 and Shelby came up to her and gave her a big hug and said “congratulations”!! Amber kind of felt bad about it because Shelby held that school record for a few years. Shelby looked at her and said “ Don’t feel bad because records are meant to be broken “💝

Our deepest sympathty to the entire family. I can not imagine the sadness you feel, because we are sad and did not know her personally. We do know the family and we are so very sorry. May she rest with the angels.
